South Africa's townships take to ballet: Watch as classical dance stirs up Soweto
Ballet is beginning to find its feet in the country's black townships, thanks to a project to train township dance teachers in classical dance
Ballet was for decades confined to South Africa's white minority but is beginning to find its feet in the country's black townships, thanks to a project to train township dance teachers in classical dance. One morning a week, Soweto's new ballet teachers are taught by Maria, a dance teacher from Cuba. Lessons take place in the heart of Soweto, a hop and a skip from the Hector Pieterson Museum dedicated to a key moment in the fight against apartheid, the uprising led by high school students in 1976.
This was the first away series triumph for the South Africa since 2017 in New Zealand.
