The Division of Virgin Islands Cultural Education continues its “9 months of Tradition and Fun” as we prepare for our upcoming event to be held at the Sunny Isles Amphitheatre on Saturday, December 15, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Cultural Pop-up will be about learning to dance the French Quadrille. The Floor Master for this event is Ms. Patricia Browne, who has taught quadrille in our community for many years.
Patricia A. Browne is a retired elementary school teacher for the Department of Education, where she afforded children an opportunity to a quality education during her teaching profession. She truly believes that all children can, will and must learn. Ms. Browne continues to serve the children in schools by teaching them the art of quadrille dancing.
She is involved in many other church and community organizations. Within her church community, (St. John’s Anglican Church), she holds several positions, to include: Member of the Senior Choir, Youth Advisor, member of the Episcopal Church Women, and Christian Education Teacher. She’s a member of the Millennium 2000 Choir, player agent of the Elmo Plaskett East League, and member of We Deh Yah Cultural Dancers Dancers. She never hesitates when called upon to perform duties. Being able to serve her church and community is very fulfilling and she does so wholeheartedly. She is very civic minded and feels it is her honor and duty to give freely and willingly to her church and the community; thus, agreeing to serve in the various capacities when asked.
Ms. Browne is a proud graduate of the St. Croix Central High School. She attained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Carroll College; and has a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in Technology, from American Intercontinental University. She is the mother of one son and grandmother of two grandsons. She is a warm, compassionate, soft spoken, loving, and well-respected individual. She credits her success and energetic ways to her mom Ms. Iris Browne.
If you want to learn the art of French Quadrille dancing come on out on Saturday, December 15, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Sunny Isles Amphitheatre.
