May 19 to 21, 2016

The Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination (EBCCI) of The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, invites the international community of dancers, choreographers and scholars to the Second International Dance Conference & Season of Dance in beautiful Barbados, May 19 to 21, 2016.
The First International Dance Conference and  Season of Dance held in 2014, closed the annual International Diaspora Arts Festival of the EBCCI. Its introduction sought to address the dance festival void in Barbados, showcasing the crème de la crème of dance from the cultural landscape of Barbados and the full geo-political region, in a non-competitive space, outside of NIFCA and the Community Independence Competitions.

The highly successful and enjoyable inaugural season of dance, engaged the regional academy of dance, through not only collective staged work, but a Symposia of Dance, which provided international scholarly and creative input to the programme and through workshops and guest performances.

The Second International Conference and Season of Dance for 2016 is being staged on the eve of the summer festival season of Barbados. This creative season, seeks to develop camaraderie within the dance circle outside of their independent end of term productions and create relationships throughout the 
international dance community.
