Caribbean Dance Party to benefit Haitian school will feature founder on Zoom – Seacoastonline.com

PORTSMOUTH — The founder of a school in northern Haiti supported by hundreds of Seacoast residents will make a virtual appearance from the school in Milot, Haiti, at the annual Caribbean Dance Party Saturday, April 30, at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth.
Lucia Anglade will be zooming in from a classroom at the school to greet the scores of supporters and dancers who show up at the annual event to dance to Combo Sabroso and to help fund the Eben Ezer School in Haiti.
“I will be so happy to talk to the people in New Hampshire and Maine who have helped build the school,” said Lucia Anglade, founder of the Eben Ezer School. Anglade, a Haitian American living in New York, began the school in 2003. Residents of the Seacoast have been helping the school since 2007 when it had 35 students.
Anglade will zoom in from Haiti to the dance, and hopes to be accompanied by the school director and perhaps a child or two.
After a two-year break, the dance party resumes with music by Combo Sabroso, a Latin and reggae band, and a performance and Latin dance lesson by dance team Fluere Dance of Portsmouth.
After a short update on the school, COVID-19 in Haiti and the recent earthquake at 7 p.m., music will begin at 8 p.m.
The Caribbean Nights Party for Haiti, now in its 11th year, supports the education of about 500 children in Milot.
Vaccinations will be required to enter 3S and ticket sales will be limited to 200 people to avoid overcrowding.
The room has filled in the past few years, as more people have learned of the school and the dance party. Tickets are $30 in advance and $40 at the door. Tickets for people who sponsor children or teachers at the school are $25.
Tickets are available online through Paypal at lifeandhopehaiti.org/donate and for sale at A Little Something in South Berwick, Ceres Bakery in Portsmouth, and Lil’s Cafe in Kittery. More information is available by emailing newslifeandhope@yahoo.com.
