A celebration of dance in South Africa December 20, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Arts.

Dance fans heading to South Africa next year might want to attend the FNB Dance Umbrella festival in Johannesburg.

This acclaimed event sees numerous youth and community groups, choreographers and professionals convene at the Wits Theatre and Dance Factory between February 24th and March 17th for a series of groundbreaking performances.

The focus is very much on contemporary forms of dance and aims to showcase the work of some of the most talented young performers in South Africa.

Previous visiting artists have included Akram Khan and Nicole Seiler, with past festivals also giving dance companies the chance to present new work for the first time.

Visitors to South Africa can also take advantage of being in a desirable holiday destination by taking in the superb sights and sounds of Johannesburg and the surrounding regions between performances.
