iKapa Dance Theatre is establishing and creating South Africa’s first Cape Town International Dance Festival. The Festival will consist of live performances of dance, as a performed art, from local, African and other international companies from around the world.
We are thrilled to announce that through the generous support of SAFMARINE, the iKapa Training and Outreach Programme now has its very own Dance Centre in Gugulethu. The new space is situated in a brand new building and offers a fantastic studio for the Training and Outreach, and Apprenticeship Programmes offered by iKapa as well as community art groups.
Community Creative District in Gugulethu is a social tourism model that turns the community into a vibrant, productive creative hub of annual arts festivals, monthly craft and food markets and daily home gallery, tours that showcase what Gugulethu has to offer.

Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) was established in the United States in 2010 by the Obama Administration with the aim of supporting young African leaders as they spur growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance security across Africa and IKapa’s very own gets to experience this firsthand.
iKapa has 300 disadvantaged students across 4 townships and it costs an average of R30 000 per month to operate the school. Through GivenGain, we are asking our supporters to contribute R100 per month. That R100 (5 coffees or beers!) will sponsor a child to dance with iKapa Dance Training & Outreach which includes 2 – 3 dance classes per week, transportation, dance wear, uniform and when possible nutritional development.
The iKapa team would like to take this opportunity and extend its sincere thanks to supporters of iKapa Dance Theatre (you), the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and the National Arts Council of South Africa for the past & recent funding received.
If you can afford 100 ZAR / 10 British Pounds / 10 Euros / 10 US Dollars per month you can become a child sponsor and make a huge difference to the struggling communities of South Africa.
