St. Maarten – Next week Saturday Ruby Bute hosts a concert at her Silk Cotton grove art gallery in Friar’s Bay. The event is a fundraiser for the Imbali dance School. Burglars took all teaching equipment from the school on July 13. “This thoughtless act has debilitated the Imbali dance school and severely hampered the school’s operation and its ability to teach children,” Imbali’s director Clara Reyes stated in a press release.
Performing artists from both sides of the island will come together for the event that starts at seven o’clock in the evening. Among them are Caribbean Hall of Famer the Mighty Dow, saxophonist Connis Vanterpool, poet Roberto Arrindell, singer Lena Brown, the award winning dance group H.O.T., rapper Lorenzo Gomez, poet Lysanne Charles, dancer/choreographer Peggy Oulerich, drummer Julien Serguret, poet La Rich Audin, the Mosaic band, musician Addy Pantophlet, singers Jawara Joe and Junipor Lion, and dance company Anais with Hillianthe Boasman. There will also be scenes from the In the Company of Men and women – The Vagina Monologues.
All artists are donating their performance to the fundraiser.
Rent A Sound Director Arthur Hunt has donated his light and sound equipment, while Walton Holiday will donate chairs for the night of the event.
“I am very pleased and happy with the support given to this event; Imbali Center and its director Clara Reyes and teachers are doing a great job with our children. These children are not on the block but on a moving train. They’ve travelled to Guadeloupe and France where they won many prizes and will be travelling to Luxemburg in November to represent the island in international competition. They continue to strive despite the odds. We really want to encourage people to support this event. Imbali needs this,” event coordinator for Lady Ruby Bute, Marian Jno-Finn said.
Tickets are $10 and are available at van Dorp, Edine, Petes Photo, cast members, Imbali Dance School, and Top Carrot.
For information call Clara Reyes at 554 93 64, Lady Ruby Bute at 580 55 33, or Marian Jno-Finn at 556 55 84.
