presented to some individuals and groups for their contributions to island
dances and music. Oftentimes, island/folk dance and music is often
overlooked and does not get the recognition/attention that it deserves.
Island dancers/musicians spend a lot of time learning and practicing, as
well as money paying for lessons, costumes, traveling to the islands or
workshops to continue their education in dance/music. Learning dance and
playing musical instruments takes a lot of time, dedication, and hard
work. And for this reason, it is time to award island dancers and
musicians past and present.
