Jamaican Language, Jamaican dance and cliff jumping
(grand rapids, michigan usa)
Hi my name is Satorie ( sa tor e) and I am in 6th grade. I live in Grand Rapids Michigan and I am doing a project on Jamaica.
I need to know more about different dances, cliff jumping and the language.

The limestone cliffs of Negril's West End are a play ground for cliff jumpers and rock climbers.
Just across the street from Banana Shout is Rick's Cafe a bar/cafe perched on the edge of 40' to 70' cliffs.
Local cliff Divers hang out here most of the day daring and amusing each other by their aerial acrobatics.
The only charge to jump of these cliffs is of adrenaline. In some spots you have to jump over hidden obstacles like the shadow beneath the water to the left.(EagleExtremes.com)
Here is a review on cliff jumping in Negril.
Please check these pages for information on Jamaican Dances and The Jamaican Language.
All the best on your project Satorie.
