The dancers range from Juniors to Adults, including the exciting Deaf Dance Competition.   

The National Deaf Dance Competition was developed and implemented in 2006 for the hearing impaired. This annually staged programme seeks to sensitize the hearing impaired to dance forms, subsequently building ease and confidence in expressing themselves. The Competition encourages through movement, the development of a sense of rhythm, creative expression, communication of feelings, and building self–confidence. Residential workshops organized by the Commission for teachers of various hearing impaired institutions provides the necessary support mechanism for preparing their students for the Competition.

Senator Sophia Fraser-Binns will be the Guest Speaker at the JCDC National Deaf Dance Competition.

The National Festival of the Performing Arts is being held from Wednesday,
