Dancers are given a platform for creativity, expression and growth through rigorous training and performances, on and off Professional stages, thus promoting and sustaining Job creation. We need to expose the many individual talents of our country and build a new, vibrant scene for dancers.
Dance Theater Africa also focuses on youth development/ Outreach by enriching, inspiring and transforming their lives through Dance Education. These youths who come from impoverished and sub-economical areas are being kept off the streets by, attending dance classes, and away from gangsterism, drug abuse, prostitution and theft. Dance has many healing properties including helping children who suffer from mental, physical and emotional abuse. It also offers a form of escapism from the harsh realities most of our youth have to deal with daily, and is an open doorway to a brighter, more positive future!
Dance companies are on the rise in South Africa and we want to become an establishment that offers consistent work for Dancers, Choreographers and Dance Teachers with continuous growth and development for our Youth. The maintenance and growth of this company is vital to the arts and our youth.
South African artists have the privilege of being exposed to so many different cultural and traditional dance styles that it fabricates in our style and form of choreography.
