The National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica is among the best of the best. The choreography and technical skill of the dancers are amazing.

The NDTC Season is an annual affair; this was my first visit since the death of its founder, Rex Nettleford. I am pleased to say that the Company has been able to move on and develop some new numbers as well as paying homage to Rex through its classic numbers.

beautiful! a must for all visitors to Kingston and lovers of dance. Jamaica is more than a beach! If you are lucky, you can catch them on tour in major US cities. Christmas, Easter and Independence (in August) performances are literally spellbinding!

Each time I visit Kingston, I make every effort to see the NDTC if they are performing. (I try to time my visit during the theatre season). I never tire of the phenomenal dancers, singers, and drummers. You'll probably be hooked too after the first performance.
