I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Jamaica and worked with the Jamaican 4-H Clubs. I fell in love with the people, the country and the music. I have alays loved the jamaican culture, but it wasn't till I lived there that I grew a real sense of home.

During a 4-H Clubs Achievement Day event in Golden Grove, St. Ann, Jamaica, these young students came and started dancing to the music. All the young students were instantly attracted to the older boys and sat mesmerized by their simple side steps. Music and dance are a part of life in Jamaica and children learn all the styles from an early age.
