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.
