MHTXlogoThrough the support of the Maria Holder Memorial Trust, the Pinelands Creative Workshop (PCW) will be kicking off its training for 2016 with the courses listed below.  The goal of the project “Youth Beyond Expectations – Cultural Development Program” is to develop the capacity of youth using the gateway concept for the purpose of exposing youth to opportunities; creating a greater appreciation for various art forms; improving the internal technical competencies; improving the performance of children in school and other learning environments through structured developmental activities.

As you will realize from the Schedule below, all dance classes for 2016 will be conducted at the Parkinson School to allow the Head Office to undergo repairs.

  • New Applicants: BDS$80.00 (Non Refundable Registration fee: $30.00 (plus) First Term Fee: BDS$50.00)
