90 mins
Includes food, drinks, tickets, equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

This 90 minute tour is a great opportunity to spend time with a Jamaican who shares your interest in music & Dance.

Dance is a part of Jamaican culture and everyday life, and it always has been. Jamaica’s musical and dance forms are rich, powerful and vibrant and reflect both the high and low points in the society.

* We will take you on a journey of learning the history of Jamaican dance, traditional dance moves and the origins of dancehall.

*We help you navigate your way through the most authentic street dances on the island.

*You will learn the technique and creative steps that go into our most popular dance moves so you can enjoy the local parties or just show off to your family and friends.

*The vibe of the old school neighbourhood corner dance is still alive but may be offensive to outsiders so some sessions are best only attended with a local connection from the area as an escort.

*The more organized dance sessions like this one may be a better place to start as your introduction to the real Jamaican Dancehall culture.

I am the founder of First Dance Studios, one of the two Jamaican owned dance companies in Montego Bay and the only one to have classes running all year long for both children & adults. I absolutely love my Country, music and the performing arts and I am passionate about sharing my gift and the joy it brings with everyone I meet. My team and I present a season of dance show/ musical every year since I opened my business 7 years ago that host over 800 guests annually. I have taken students to represent Jamaica in The World championships of performing arts in Los Angeles on two occasions and I have won 15 medals for my country. I am confident that either myself or one of my qualified instructors on my team would be one of the best persons to offer you a True Jamaican Dance Experience.
