The Dragon Can Dance !
Glen Dragon De Souza founded the Dragon Keylemanjahro School Of Arts & Culture in Trinidad primarily to teach kids the art of dancing on stilts and become a Moko Jumbie. But they also practice African and Limbo dance besides juggling and fire eating.
When I photographed Dragon (below) preparing his students for a dance competition last night, I was reminded of Earl Lovelace's wonderful book 'The Dragon Can't Dance'. Well, here is proof that he can...
The school yard will be very busy with the final practice and costume fittings for Saturdays big Kiddies Carnival Parade. Stay tuned for more !!
