As happened last year, Adam Smith Square in Woodbrook was overflowing with people last Saturday night for the second staging of the Mayor’s Pan Jazz Experience.

My name is Leanne Charles and I like to dance in the grocery.
My middle name is V-I-V-I-A-N-E. That is “Vivienne.” I’m five.
I live at home and I go to Sacred Heart Girls’ RC School. I am in Miss Celestine’ class. That is first year.
I like writing and spelling best. I can’t spell “smoke” but I can spell D-O-G dog and C-A-T-E cat. Miss Celestine is my favourite teacher.
I don’t have any brothers and sisters. I’m very special. My mummy is Lisa Marie Charles. My papa [grandfather] is Louis Russell Charles.
I play games like “river bank” at school. Plenty friends have to play. Once somebody in river, that means they out. And when everybody get in river, game over.
I like to colour in school. And I like to draw a flower.
On Tuesdays, after school, I do pan. And on Fridays, gymnastics. And on Saturdays, swimming. But I like swimming, pan and gymnastics most.
I like to eat spaghetti with mincemeat and ketchup. And Nerds is my favourite sweetie. And I like the blue potato chips. In the blue pack. I’s drink shandy and Peardrax.
I could swim in the deep. But I could only go underwater at swimming. I could hold my breath for a hundred million.
My favourite movie is Frozen; because I like to sing and dance. My favourite song is Barbie. But I like to sing a Ravi B song: “Is your mo-ther! She want me buy a bread for she!”
I like apple-cherry drink, but only in a small little box. I like the one with this word: Orchard.
I like pink, purple, yellow and green. But I like pink the mostest.
Kaia is my best friend, and Chloe, but in Sacred Heart, my best friends are Faith, Victoria and Dannika. And I can’t remember how to spell Kalissia’ name. And either Cheyenne or Shianne. I don’t know the spelling.
I like Carnival. I playing mas since Snakes & Ladders band when I was three. I even get letters from school saying if I could join the school mas band. I played a bee in the school band and a fruit salad with Auntie Rosemary Perkins. And Chloe was a watermelon.
My mummy is read stories to me. I like “Cat in the Hat.” That is not a bedtime story. That is an “anytime” story. Green Eggs and Ham good, too. That Sam I am! But it have plenty pages! I do not like it with a fox or with too much pages. I even have little books.
I always liked to dance in the grocery, especially with Yo Gabba Gabba music. I will sing and dance in Hi-Lo because I like it!
The best part of singing and dancing in the grocery is that it is fun. And you have a whole aisle to dance in. And the music is play above your head.
A Trini is somebody from Trinidad. I living in Trinidad. So that makes me happy. Also a Trini.
I love Trinidad. I went Tobago but it was boring.
