Nothing but Double Gold for the Dancescape Dancers
Had the Late Fiona Sargeant been alive today she would have been very proud of The Dancescape South Africa dancers. On Saturday the 18th of August 2018 they performed in 9 entries at this year’s Montagu Youth Arts Festival. All 9 pieces, which ranged from Ballet to contemporary and Pantsula, received double gold certificates. Whilst working with the dancers Fiona would have said “What you put in, is what you get out”. The dancers who are trained by Manie and Farouk Irving and directed by Mitya Sargeant have now receiving the benefits of what they had put in after hours and hours of hard work. Apart from the clean run of double gold they also received awards for the Best Ballet Group, Best Contemporary Group, Best Ballet Solo (Lutho Zwedala) and Best Ballet Duet/Trio/Quartet (Sibabalo November and Anele Bizwaphi). Trophies were also awarded to the Best Group Overall Entry and to the Most Promising Dancer (Lutho Zwedala). Manie and Farouk are delighted with the progress of the students and hope to build upon the success of this year’s festival.
