St. Johnians CAN dance

Couples If there was any question, there isn't now.

Three months ago, Pierre Dulaine and developers of the Pond Bay resort announced a program of dance classes for the island's fifth graders.  Last weekend, it was graduation time.

Dulaine, founder of the American Ballroom Dance Studio, hosted the 'finals,' a ballroom dance competition at the St. John Westin.  The evening was called St. John's first annual Colors of the Rainbow Team Match and it brought out a huge crowd of watchers and a talented group of dancers.

CoupleOne person on the sidelines said the evening "wildly popular with the largest cross collection or mix of island demographics that I’ve seen at any single indoor island event."

The Inquiring Iguana offers many kudos to Dulaine and his instructors who ran the classes from September to December; to Pond Bay and its developer Bob Emmett for funding the project, and to Awardsthe students and their parents and loved ones for their focus, hard work and energy.
