Come February 23, Impact World (IW) will launch an action-packed performance event series set to sweep through Barbados during the last week of February through to March 25.

Three teams – Global Expression, Island Breeze and Team Xtreme – made up of hip hop and break dancers, musicians, Polynesian dancers, cultural artists and athletes, will perform in various communities, as well at Kensington Oval, putting together unique and stunning shows for spectators.

The first two performances are set for Gall Hill Playing Field, St John, and kicks off at 6:30 p.m. nightly. Other performances will be held on March 2 and March 3, at St Martin’s Playing Field, St Philip; March 8 and March 10, at Wotton Playing Field, Christ Church; March 16 and March 17, at Speightstown Playing Field, St Peter; and March 22, 23, 24 and 25, at Kensington Oval, St Michael.


Admission to each event is free. The Global Xpression team features young people from around the world who perform the latest in hip-hop and break dance in a fast-paced, action-packed multimedia presentation. Team Xtreme executes breathtaking feats of strength and athletic prowess; ripping telephone books in half, flipping cars, bending steel bars on body parts and shattering stacks of concrete bricks with their bare hands.

These are just a few of their hair-raising maneuvers. Island Breeze showcases the beauty of Pacific culture in a programme the whole family can enjoy. Stunning costumes, fire knife dancers, and pounding Pacific drums are all part of this spectacular and inspiring show. Impact World began in 1993, and has travelled across the globe.

The tour has performed in cities throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America and the Asia-Pacific region. All of the IW teams consist of volunteer-performers from around the world, who share a message of hope and purpose with their audiences.

For the Barbados campaign, IW teams will also perform in schools, communities and prisons to engage, challenge and encourage especially young men and women to live to their fullest potential. Local artists will also be featured during shows in the community and at Kensington Oval. For more information please visit www. impactcaribbean.org or call 622-3028/6075. (PR)
