Independence celebration

The island of Dominica celebrates its Independence on November 3. The entire month consists of cultural events such as dancing, parades and music festivals. I was lucky enough to join my village during their weekend of semi finals in the dance competition. For three nights they traveled to different venues on the island to perform a variety of cultural dances. Each night was about 5 hours of dancing from high school age to adult age groups.
