SIP to ‘Ex­hale’ and ‘El­e­vate’

Jamaica Gleaner - - TODAY - Kim­berly Goodall Gleaner Writer

AF­TER PAR­TIC­I­PAT­ING in a week­end filled of mo­ti­va­tional ses­sions, ter­tiary stu­dents from across the Rock got the op­por­tu­nity to let their hair down and turn the heat up on the dance floor with Ex­hale and El­e­vate.

The two-night party se­ries, hosted by Sagi­cor’s In­spire Project (SIP), in­cluded ex­cit­ing fire breathers, cul­tural steel pan orches­tra, a dy­namic dee­jay tak­ing beats to pul­sat­ing heights and a palat­able com­bi­na­tion of s’mores and marsh­mal­lows via bon­fire.

Ex­hale, a cock­tail party by the beach­side, was def­i­nitely a night to re­mem­ber. Cock­tails aside, the high­light of the night came from the man of the hour, Mark Chisholm, sweep­ing the sand with dance moves, seem­ingly age­less with his burst of en­ergy and vi­tal­ity. The mil­len­ni­als tried their hard­est to keep up, but they were just no match for his prow­ess. Talk about in­spir­ing in the board­room and on the dance floor!

Mean­while, ‘El­e­vate’ cleared the way for DJ Smoke, who fed mu­sic from the ‘wheels of steel’ to the feet of the young and the young at heart. Sway­ing to the beats from in the streets and be­yond, it was clear that this young crowd es­caped to a pro­lific state of eu­pho­ria.

All in all, Ex­hale and El­e­vate played their part in mo­ti­vat­ing every­one in at­ten­dance.
