Jamaica is much more than a great travel destination where you can sit in the sun and maybe, ahem, buy a little ganja on the sly: Its a country steeped in diversity and cultural richness, which are aspects we dont get to sample oftenespecially in the medium of dance. The National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica offers a prime opportunity to see authentic regional dances demonstrating the rituals and traditional lore of the island. For the companys 45th anniversary, choreographer Rex Nettleford includes repertoire worksas in The Crossing, a celebration of the end of the trans-Atlantic slave tradeand pieces by guest choreographers such as Haitis Jeanguy Saintus and Cubas Arsenio Andrade-Calderon.
