Bio

The Andre Ettienne Performing Arts Company was first formed in 1972 as the Andre Ettienne Dance Company which was well renowned. It was relaunched in 2007 after the death of the founder Andre Ettienne.

The group embraces all the traditional folk dances of Trinidad & Tobago as well as the modern and contemporary dance forms.

In recent times it has progressed to a registered performing arts company to enable our students to have a more holistic Arts education.
