Jamaica International Dancehall Queen Information Page
Ladies Dancing Competition

Reggae Dancehall Queen was first just a name given to a dancehall fashion Queen.

The first title was won by Carlene Smith in 1991 at the once famous Cactus Night Club in Portmore, St Catherine Jamaica.

The Official competition was started in 1996 by Brian "Big Head" Martin.

Jamaica dance-hall queen is now recognized as the official competition used to crown the hottest female dancer.

Dancehall Queen Carlene - First Official Dancehall Queen

This led to the making of the Movie with the same name in 1997.

Starring Audrey Reid, this movie is about a single mother who entered the dancing competition to make extra funds for her family.

Beenie man and Chevelle Franklin then recorded a single with the same title, which to date is a major hit in the dancehall sessions and parties.

The competition is now internationally known and attracts dancers from all over the world. Places such as Germany, Canada, England USA, Japan and Jamaica.

This is one of the most anticipated calendar event in Jamaica, which is held at Pier One Montego Bay.

The first foreign winner was Junko Kudo from Japan. She won the title in 2002.
