Welcome to Dancescape South Africa
Welcome to Dancescape South Africa (DSA). We are a NPO (REF: 168-724 NP) and a Public Benefit Organization (930055804). Our focus is on developing our youth, in disadvantaged rural communities, through dance. DSA facilitates dance classes in the Zolani and Asbury Townships near Montagu, in the Western Cape of South Africa.
Dear Dancescape South Africa visitors and friends, it is with great sadness that I must tell you that Fiona Sargeant has passed away peacefully on the 23rd of September. As many of you may know Fiona lost her fight again cancer. The objective of Dancescape South Africa is to keep Fiona’s legacy alive. Her legacy is to uplift and develop rural disadvantaged kids through dance. Fiona has planted the seed which now need to be watered, nurtured and allowed to grow. Our desire is to preserve this legacy for the longest time. Please enjoy these pictures of Fiona mostly taken in the last 9 Months of this year and of her life. She was a very special person, full of energy, love, filled with passion for life and the dance. She will be sorely missed. We believe that she is dancing on high.
Our experience has revealed a remarkable amount of natural talent so much so that many who have grown up in these townships are now working as professional dancers all around the world. We aim to introduce and encourage talented young dancers to a career in dance and the performing arts.
Dancescape South Africa gives the youth an opportunity to not only learn the art of dance but also to perform throughout the year. When adequate funding is available we strive to provide further training opportunities in Cape Town and abroad.
