      Description:

      Founder Lesole Maine and his dancers blend South African roots with a modern approach for an engaging program blending dance, history, and culture. Experience three exciting dance cultures from the tip of the African continent! Traditional Ndlamu dance gives a snapshot of Zulu village clothing, customs, and high-energy drumming. The moves and percussive sounds of Gumboot create a kind of “instant messaging” dance slapped out on gold miners’ rubber boots. Pantsula, an upbeat, urban dance similar to American hip-hop, adds a contemporary connection to this overview of authentic South African dance styles.
