How we move

Dance is a common experience of all cultures, yet we all express it so differently.


Within the Caribbean region, it is fascinating to see how territories have created forms of dance unique to their own experience. Barbados is yet to define a form of dance of its own, but we have embraced them all.

Ballroom dancing has long been a favourite pastime of Barbadians. More recently, Latin dance has become very popular, with many clubs formed and an annual competition held.

As The Barbados Summer Arts Festival develops, dance will become one of the signature events on our calendar.
