"A Festive Celebration" on the 8th of December 2018
Dear readers. It’s been a fantastic year for Dancescape South Africa (DSA). This year we were able to support Lihle Mfene to pursue further training at the Cape Academy of Performing Arts and he will be joined by Lutho Zwedala next year. We employ two Resident Teachers and have recently added a Public Relations Officer who continues to do great work for us in the townships. We would be unable to do all of this without the kind donations of individuals from all around the world. This year our dancers won numerous awards at the Montagu Youth Arts Festival including the Best Dance Entry of the Festival 2018. We recently received the Winelands Mayoral Tourism Award for Best Special Project. To top the year up we will be showcasing our dancers at a performance called “A Festive Celebration” on the 8th of December at the KWV Building in Montagu. We invite you all to pack a picnic of your favorite eats and drinks and to join us at 4pm on that Saturday afternoon. Throw a blanket down and relax before the performance which will start at 6pm. Tickets are only R50 for Adults and R10 for children. Not only will you enjoy a fabulous evening of great dance but you will also be supporting us to continue our work for the benefit of the youth in the townships. Many of you have supported us and in particular Fiona Sargeant throughout the years. Fiona sadly passed away in 2017 and her wish was for the work that she started to continue. Only with your support will this be possible. For booking and more information please phone Mitya at 078 295 7879 or Patricia at 061 920 6940.
One of our DSA dancers will soon be dancing in the USA
|Dancescape South Africa is proud to announce that one of our students will be travelling to the United States of America to attend a dance intensive workshop in June and July of this year. Thimna Ndwe, a 15 year old learner at the Ashton CP School, was selected by former American Ballet Theatre Ballerina Kristine Elliot to attend the San Francisco Ballet summer school held in San Francisco. Apart from ballet technique classes, Thimna will also have pas de deux, repertory, character, pantomime, contemporary and dance conditioning training. We are very proud of Thimna who attends daily classes and rehearsals at the Dancescape South Africa studio in Zolani. Through her hard work and dedication she is now able to be given an opportunity to learn from some of the best dancers in the world. DSA would like to thank Kristine Elliot for all her help and financial support to make this trip possible.|
