Happy National Dance Day

As dancers across the world celebrate 'Happy National Dance Day' we take time to send shoutouts to the many dancers across Jamaica's music industry. Dancing goes hand in hand with much of Dancehall music, it's fun and provides an income for many Jamaicans who thrive on the small but growing industry. 

We also remember late Dance icons Bogle and Ice who contributed tremendously to the popularity of the art in Jamaica.  If you have not done so already, download Dr. Shaka Pow McDonald's 'Dancing 101' album memorablia, a collection of dance songs that captures 'dance moves' by some of Jamaica's best Dancers over 10 years.
