The young children were first out the block in the Sagicor National Independence of Festival and Creative Arts (NIFCA) juniors finals held Friday night at the Frank Collymore Hall before a sold-out audience.
Performing on the night were 19 entrants – six in dance, five in speech, seven for music and one in drama – all looking for gold.
Rousing applause echoed through the Hall for the Dancin’ Africa Children’s Company piece UMOJA – The Spirit of Togetherness.
Here, a part of the group coming together in one of the sections. NIFCA Performing Arts Finals continue tonight and end Tuesday.
