PROBLEM

The transformation of South Africa lies with the development of the disadvantaged communities and the youth. To rectify the imbalance of education, professional and vocational skills, social economy, and employment opportunities, the youth need to be disciplined, motivated and trained.

Arts & culture are vital to the heritage of the country and the growth and development of entrepreneurs, leaders and a united nation. Skills training and opportunities are lacking in areas where they could be having a significant impact.

SOLUTION

Dance promotes creative thinking, scientific thinking, mathematical thinking, physical awareness, nutritional awareness, emotional awareness and access to opportunities. The arts provide inspiration, education, entertainment, unity while also contributing to the economy. iKapa Dance provides programmes that offer opportunities for community, youth and arts development.

The team has always looked for ways to inspire and motivate its dancers, learners, audiences and public and work in partnership with its Funders, Friends & Collaborators to achieve its goals.
