Join RJC Dance for a one hour Carnival Dance workshop – dance, movement and exercise to Soca Music, the sounds of the Caribbean.

Carnival is a kaleidoscope of colour with the splendour of beautiful costumes, unity, celebrating Crop Over (a traditional harvest festival originating on the sugar cane plantations during the enslavement of Black people), a huge street party with mesmerising energy – culture bringing diverse communities together.

It is a cultural exchange enjoyed by all the family and a flagship event in the Leeds in cultural calendar.
