Join us in conjunction with the 46th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival as it kicks off the weekend long festivities with a two day Siamsa (Irish Variety Show) and Party, featuring Irish step dancing, traditional pipe & drum bands, Irish storytelling, tales of Celtic Mythology, food, beer, live music and ending with the Celtic tradition of the Circle of Lights. The Irish Siamsa is hosted by the Master Leprechaun Himself, the original Jack Ryan, the Bard of Belmar, Shanachie of the Irish Riviera and the Jersey Shore's Storyteller extraordinaire.

Why all the shaved heads? Worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes, and one in five children diagnosed in the U.S. will not survive. With only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding dedicated to pediatric cancer research, St. Baldrick’s Foundation volunteers, supporters and donors are needed to continue the battle against this devastating disease.

Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s has awarded more than $127 million to support lifesaving research, making the Foundation the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants.

The new documentary, Mambo Man, produced by Miami-based dancer and choreographer Barbara Craddock, recalls an era when dance was influencing culture and society in ways rarely seen since. A preview of the film is set for 3 p.m. Sunday, March 30, 2014 at the Norton Museum of Art, 1451 S. Olive Ave. in West Palm Beach.
The preview also includes a Latin dance performance by the Palm Beach Atlantic University Dance Ensemble as well as music by renowned percussionist (and Palm Beach County resident) Pablo “Chino” Nunez, who served as a consultant for the documentary, and produced and arranged all the original music for the film. The event is free with regular museum admission. For information, visit www.Norton.org. (A podcast featuring interviews with Craddock, Nunez, and others associated with the project is available at www.artsradionetwork.com.)
In the 1950s, something unique was happening at the Palladium dance hall on 53rd Street and Broadway in New York City not seen in other parts of the country. While distinctions in class and race were the norm at the time, teenagers from all backgrounds were drawn to The Palladium, which was the epicenter of the Latin dance craze called the mambo.Ask anyone who grew up in that area at that time and they’ll tell you their tales of sneaking out of the house, their dance garb hidden, to mambo late into the night led by dance legend Pedro “Cuban Pete” Aguilar and his partner. (Desi Arnez gave him the “Cuban Pete” moniker even though he was Puerto Rican.)
Miami-based dancer and choreographer Barbara Craddock, nationally known for her talent and passion for the mambo genre and clave-based Latin dance and music, was a longtime dance partner of “Cuban Pete’s” and vowed to carry on the late dancer’s legacy.
As executive producer of Mambo Man, she teamed with Luis Rosario Albert, second assistant director of Armistad (1997), Under Suspicion (2000), and El Cantante (2006), and Alan Tomlinson, an Emmy-award-winning television producer and documentary filmmaker.
Setting the stage for the screening, percussionist Nunez, who has worked with legendary figures such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Johnny Pacheco, Marc Anthony, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, and Ruben Blades, will perform Latin music, and members of the PBA Dance Ensemble will perform "Si Me Pudieras Amar,” a Latin dance piece choreographed by Craddock.

About The Jamaica Committee, Inc.
The Jamaica Committee, Inc. is a U.S. based 501(c)3 charitable organization formed by Jamaicans and lovers of Jamaica intent on helping the less advantaged in Jamaica while promoting the island. The Organization, formed in 2000, is run by 6 volunteer Directors. Its main fund-raising event, the Pineapple Ball for 12 years successfully lived out its promise to supporters to enjoy making good things happen. Funds generated from each Ball are distributed annually to support education, medical needs, programs against violence, encouragement for the arts and support for the needy on the island. Pineapple Ball 2001 received the Mayor's Award and a Mayoral Declaration of Pineapple Ball Day (Miami). Between 2002 and 2009, the Ball was held at The Ritz Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Rose Hall where in 2008, it was declared "event of the year" (Maco Magazine). In 2010, the decision was made to move the gala back to Miami where it began, in order to live out one of TJC'S formation objectives - that of showing the best of Jamaica in art, craft, music and food - and helping to promote that which is uniquely Jamaican.
The Jamaica Charity Gala is a collaboration between the American Friends of Jamaica and The Jamaica Committee, with both organizations combining their mission to identify and honor persons and organizations which have distinguished themselves in various fields and are selfless in their service to Jamaica and to have a grand, happy, splendid affair for the benefit of Jamaica.
