Dance in T&T – Caribbean School of Dancing

September 12, 2006

Here’s a little something about the Caribbean School of Dancing. Please note that this excerpt was obtained from the Metamorphosis Dance Company’s website – Go to the site to read more about the school since this is just a snippet and I am not the original publisher.

The Caribbean School of Dancing, or Caribbean School, as it is popularly known, was founded by Marcia Moze in January 1957. Classes were held at the Overseas Forces Club on Queen’s Park East. In 1958, the school moved to Dundonald Street and students were first entered for the prestigious Royal Academy of Dancing exams held in Trinidad and administered by London. The first school production, entitled Dance Little Lady was held in the following year.

In 1967 Patricia Roe, a former pupil, returned and joined the teaching staff and has been teaching ever since. Many prominent Trinidad and Tobago dancers at home and abroad still boast of being taught by a bevy of world-class instructors, not the least of whom is the legendary Miss Roe. In 1972 the Joanne Decle School of Dance merged with the Caribbean School of Dancing and the school acquired two studios on Cipriani Boulevard.
