Modern dance takes centre stage

One of the most anticipated and highly competitive nights of the National Independence Festival Of Creative Arts would have to be that of the Scotiabank NIFCA Performing Arts Dance Finals. And if there were any questions about it, the packed Frank Collymore Hall last night should have been proof enough.

Adios, Bajan amigos

Adios, Bajan amigos

Over the past four years, her face has been a very familiar one, not only in Barbados diplomatic circles, but at most –– if not all –– major cultural and social events.
