Zika no longer a high level threat to the Caribbean

From Fond Doux Resort

In wonderful news for travellers to the Caribbean and the region as a whole, Zika has been removed as a high level threat by the World Health Organization. While news of the virus has been quiet since its original debut a few years ago, we know that your health and well-being is still the most important factor when making travel plans.

We are so happy to see travel advisories lifted and concerns put at ease. Bringing bug spray is never a bad idea when you visit a tropical destination and we are pleased that it will merely protect you from the discomfort of a bug bite rather than potential illness.

If you’re interested in learning more, we invite you to read the official release from the Caribbean Public Health Agency here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Caribbean, worry-free!

To book a class click here go to: https://ticket.cds.ky/event?category=1&mc_cid=fcf38bc98d&mc_eid=7dd5b9efca


Acting – Junior group: 10-12 yrs 4.00-5.30pm $135

**This class moves into exploration of character, improvisation and devising their own pieces. This is a key age for development and therefore we place a strong focus on the creative process and everyone getting to input ideas with whatever we work on.**


Acting – Stage group: 13-16 yrs 5.00-6.30pm $155

**By this age all the core skills from the other age groups will be covered, along with script work and the option to try directing other scenes with guidance. On occasion, this class will choose their own pieces and this can include both classical and modern texts.**

Actors Training: 7-9pm $200

**This class is mixed ability. It will be tailored to the groups needs but will likely include in depth scene studies, character work and improvisation/devising skills along with acting theory and techniques. There will be the option of selecting your own pieces at points, if the group chooses this.**


Acting – Mini group: 5-6 yrs 3.15-4.15pm $80

**This class has the focus on play and storytelling. Children will largely do teacher-in-role exercises and learn to work as part of a group, as well as individuals. They will be asked to explore their imagination with an aim to develop confidence alongside skills. This can eventually lead to the creation of their own work and some small performances.**

Acting – Junior group: 7-9 yrs 4.30-6pm $135

**This class moves into exploration of character, improvisation and devising their own pieces. This is a key age for development and therefore we place a strong focus on the creative process and everyone getting to input ideas with whatever we work on. It works with a slightly smaller age group, and younger content than our 10-12s class whilst building on the same skill set.**

There’s always something happening…

This October, Camana Bay is hosting activities and events to celebrate and encourage positive health, both mental and physical, at every age. Start off the month by showing your support for a good cause with the Anti-Bullying Fair, presented by the Family Resource Centre and Hurley’s Media on Saturday, Oct. 6. Children will be encouraged to showcase their creative work to raise awareness of the social effects of bullying in school and all its forms. Families are also encouraged to stay fit for a cause by taking part in the Mental Health Walk and Talk, presented by the Alex Panton Foundation on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and the Save Our Youth (SOY) Monster Dash on Saturday, Oct. 20. October is marked globally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and everyone is invited to participate in the annual Pilates for Pink, run by ENERGY Essential Fitness.

Shoppers’ Night Out is back this year, happening on Thursday, Oct. 18 with a night of special offers and promotions for participating shops and restaurants in Camana Bay. Shopper will enjoy music, food, refreshments and chances to win raffle prizes all night long! Late-Night Shopping at Camana Bay will kick off the same night, with shops staying open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays from Oct. 18 until the holiday season ends, making it easier than ever to sneak in those after-work errands and pick up those gifts and supplies for the weekend.

We can’t leave the month of October without a Halloween-themed family event. On Wednesday, Oct. 31, Camana Bay will host Halloween on the Big Screen on the Crescent. This year the public will have the opportunity to vote, through Camana Bay’s social media, to choose which film will be shown that night!

Curator’s Corner
                                                    Untitled (Eve Picking Fruit) by Miguel Powery
Untitled (Eve Picking Fruit) is a lithograph print on paper created by Miguel Powery. This print was made as a result of the National Gallery’s Artist Away grant. The grant generated funds for Miguel Powery and his fellow Caymanian artists (Wray Banker, Gordon Solomon and Hermes Solomon Hydes) to travel to Havana, Cuba. The four artists learned lithograph printing from the Taller Experimental de Grafica workshop, and the Untitled work was one print created by Powery during his time there.
As a member of the Native Sons, a Caymanian art collective, Powery is often known for his devotion to creating images that depict Caymanian culture, often illustrated through subjects about maritime activities. The Untitled print was a shift away from Powery’s usual subjects, and it showed him exploring the Genesis story of Adam and Eve at the moment that Eve is tempted to pick the apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Satan is depicted in the guise of a serpent, which Powery has characterised as a long-tongued and fraudulent character. His choice to explore this biblical narrative alludes to Powery’s interest in other factors that affect Caymanian culture besides maritime traditions.
