As Chairman of the board of Praise Academy of Dance and a Director of Step By Step Productions, Dave has over the past 20 years managed the development and growth of these entities in an ever evolving landscape. Dave has worked assiduously to distribute the films of Step By Step Productions to the islands of the Caribbean, the USA, Canada, the UK, France, Cuba, Brazil and the African Continent. One of his passions is to create opportunities for young people to discover, embrace, develop and utilize their talents and strongly believes “opportunity” is one of the ways we can reduce some of the negative ills of our society. Having experienced a tiny bit of Africa, Dave believes many opportunities lay awaiting, as Mother Africa becomes more aware of her children in the Caribbean.

Marcia has been the Artistic Director of Praise Academy of Dance - Barbados for over 17 years.
