After wowing South African audiences in 2010, Dada Masilo's Swan Lake is enthralling the rest of the world. Combining traditional ballet with African dance, the performance has been described as fresh, upbeat, innovative, and diverse. It sensitively deals with issues such as homophobia and apartheid's legacy.
Dancing is a powerful form of self-expression; it is also used as tool for healing. At Moving Into Dance Mophatong, it was used to celebrate women at a special dance class held during Women’s Month.
Dance talent is sought and nurtured in Gauteng's disadvantaged townships by South African Mzansi Ballet. Young, poor dancers are introduced to the joy of classical ballet and exposed to a potential career in the performing arts.
