Rise Dance Programme


Rise Dance is a programme that uplifts, unites and empowers children. The programme is designed to spark innate creativity and to begin to build a foundation for more in- depth technical training; to help children grow as artists at all levels from fundamental to tertiary. The programme emphasises a strong technical foundation while educating and broadening the mind to appreciate and integrate the artistic voice of dance, past and present in all forms. Rise Dance Programme targets children from the ages of 4 – 16 years. The classes take place every Saturday from 11am – 1pm at the KwaMashu Indoor Sport Centre. Children are trained in the following dance genres: Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Zulu, Gumboot, Pantsula and Sophia Town dance.
