Minister of Culture Hon. Silveria Jacobs was honored to be the guest at the 1st Annual NIA Dance Recital entitled "NIA in Wonderland" on Saturday evening.
The joining of forces of the Motiance Dance School and Imbali Center for Creative Movement and the Arts signals a growth in the mindset of the creative directors as well as bigger and better opportunities for the all art lovers of St. Maarten, as the institute offers classes in dance, music, drama and art, Minister Jacobs stated on Monday.
The Minister commends especially Clara Reyes and Arlene Halley for the vision and initiative to embark on this very unique journey for the further development of the Arts on St. Maarten.
The performance of the students during the Recital was awe inspiring, as the different genres of dance and the varying ages of the dancers brought joy to the hearts of the spectators.
Minister Jacobs wishes NIA much success in its quest to offer more to the youth and adults of St. Maarten who see the arts as a vehicle for the expression of creativity.
