The Waitukubuli Dance Theatre Company will be celebrating 45 years of creative dance with a dance production entitled "Celebrating the Dream" on Friday April 29th and Saturday April 30th 2016 at the Arawak House of Culture starting at 8 p.m. The event will form part of DOMFESTA activities this year.

The event will feature performances by the Senior, Intermediate and Junior sections of the Dance Company. Several new dance pieces will form part of this very exciting and colourful spectacle with new choreographic works by the Artistic Director Raymond Lawrence and also Dorelle Diolen, Curvelle Woodman, Scott Dorsette, Tricia Louis and Emanie Casimir among others.

During the show the Dance Company will also be honouring Dr. Alwin Bully for his contribution to the development of arts and culture in Dominica and the region.

Tickets for the show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door and are available at Depex and from Waitukubuli members. Sponsors of the dance production include the Ministry of Culture, Ross University, the AID Bank and Digicel Dominica Ltd.

The general public is being encouraged to support the dance production and be a part of a beautiful and creative expression of Dominica's arts and culture.

During its 45 years of existence, the Waitukubuli Dance Theatre Company has been able to provide countless opportunities for hundreds of young persons in Dominica to develop their skills in creative dance, some of whom have gone on to form their own dance groups and conduct their own dance training programmes. We have organized the annual Miss Teen Dominica Pageant for 39 years and we have also organized Carnival bands, Galaxy of Stars productions, Miss Dominica Fashion Model competitions and dance drama productions which include "Papa Toussaint – the Slave Who Freed Haiti", "Kabouki", "The Resurrection" and the "The Power and the Glory".

In addition, through the years the Dance Company has provided entertainment at every major festival in Dominica including the World Creole Music Festival, Independence Celebrations, Carnival, DOMFESTA and Emancipation Celebrations. The Company has also toured and staged performances in several Caribbean islands, promoting Dominica and Dominica's culture everywhere it has performed.
