Space still available for those interested in improving the Calypso judging skills

Persons who have had experience in and would like to improve their calypso judging skills are being invited to attend a series of calypso judging workshops scheduled for this week. Organizers have announced that there is still space for more participants in the workshops.

Eric "Pink Panther" Taylor will be returning to St Maarten on Monday to conduct a second series of workshops over the next few days as The Sky is the Limit Foundation attempts to train more judges on St Maarten in the art of effective calypso judging. Following a very successful calypso judging workshop in March, promises had been made to have Pink Panther return to conduct another session. "We are very pleased to have Panther return and to have the Windward Islands Bank and Sonesta Great Bay on board as sponsors who see the need to again support these workshops; Toontje Buncamper stated.

The intention is to have two workshops daily; one in the afternoon and one in the evening. Each day the workshop will be held for 4 hours. The organizing Committee of the Senior Calypso workshop will also have a session with Pink Panther to discuss ways of further improving the artform on the island.

The training will be held over a four day period:

Group 1: Tuesday April 21st to Friday April 24th from 1.00pm to 5.00pm

Group 2: Tuesday April 21st to Friday April 24th from 6.00pm to 10.00pm

The workshop will be held at the WIB training Center at the Wathey Commercial Complex in Point Blanche.

The trainings will be interactive workshops where discussions can take place. Once the pool of judges has been trained, they can be selected randomly to fulfill their role at any Calypso show.

Invitations have been sent out to several persons, but there is still space for more participants. Anyone still interested in attending the workshop can contact Mr. Rolando Tobias at to******@ho*****.com (580-5915) or Toontje Buncamper at ca*********@gm***.com (520-1188).

The organizing committee also announced that these workshops are only open to judges and not calypsonians.
