Believe that you are amazing! Believe that your passion, technique, creativity, dedication, strength and purpose make you a great dancer. Don’t feed your insecurity. Comparison robs you of lifelong friendships, a good night’s rest and your own self esteem. Doubt is the enemy of your dreams. Feed your spirit with positive things. You are who you are, embrace that! Love yourself and own your talent. You can be the better you that you want to be. Dig your heels in, plié with all you’ve got and jump for the stars. Go big or go home! You’re NOT as good as your last class. You are not your worst day or your best day. Hard work never failed anybody. And motivation never killed anyone either. DO. NOT. FEED. THE. FEARS.
There’s no reason to stay home for the next few weeks as some of Jamaica’s leading dance companies put on their annual seasons of dance. Mark your calendars and buy your tickets!

I have not written a review in a long time, not for the lack of going to dance shows, but simply for lack of time. I’ve been biting my tongue on writing a review of Dance Theatre Xaymaca’s recent show for fear of sounding too critical and somewhat have the same reservation here. Nevertheless, the show must go on. Enjoy CDT’s 26th season through my eyes and leave your comments below.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,500 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
One Body One God (OBOG) Dance Ministry Company hosted their 2nd show on July 20-21, 2013. Here’s guest blogger Nicole Bain’s review of the show entitled The Breaking.
In only a year of existence and with only one previous season of dance under its belt, One Body One God (OBOG) has managed to attract quite a following. This was evident from the social media buzz leading up to its sophomore production ‘The Breaking’, and the full house of patrons who turned out recently to partake of the group’s offerings.
