About choreographer Anthony “Prime” Guerra:
Choreographer and dance elder Anthony “Prime” Guerra, a native of Trinidad and Tobago,  has directed and choreographed numerous productions on both local and international levels. His profound knowledge of dance, the origins of dance and the African contribution to many of today’s dance forms, has made him highly sought after by many educational institutions, corporations, by other artists in dance, theatre and film. Guerra’s cultural dance research has brought rare (and traditional) Afro-Caribbean dances and historical information to light; and his original “prime dance” philosophy stating: “Form, feeling, meaning bring forth form, feeling, healing” has uncovered the healing and spiritual aspects of dance at its most primal essence.
