From Rob Kenner in the Boston Globe: Rex Nettleford, Jamaican scholar, choreographer

Quote:
....Dr. Nettleford is perhaps best known as a founder of the National Dance Theater Company of Jamaica....

Incorporating traditional West Indian music and dance forms such as kumina, ska, and reggae, Dr. Nettleford served as the choreographer and even in his later years remained a lead dancer of the troupe, which still tours internationally, exploring the unique blend of African and European influences that makes up Caribbean culture.
