DANCE FOR YOUTH (article first published : 2002-06-9)

KZN Dance Link presents Dance for Youth, a large-scale youth dance performance on Youth Day (June 16) at God's Golden Acre, Khayelihle in Cato Ridge.

The production is led by Phenduka Dance Theatre. Performers are drawn from ten youth groups, four of them from KwaMashu, one from Cato Crest, two ballet groups, one Kathak dance studio and one Bharata Natyam, as well as students on the Phenduka Dance Theatre Training Programme.

The production celebrates the achievements of the youth of South Africa in 1976, looks at the hopes raised since, the difficulties experienced in taking hold of new opportunities and the optimism created by inter-community support.

God's Golden Acre is a beautiful "resort" set in the hills of Cato Ridge. It is home to around 50 young children and babies, as well as the centre from which over 700 people in the valley are fed and supported as the effects of AIDS bites deep into families.

Youth Day features a choir competition in the morning, and the Dance for Youth performance in the afternoon. Take along a picnic, or buy food from the food stalls. Browse around the craft stalls, and walk around the grounds in the perfect winter air. The performance is free. Further information from Lynn Maree on 031 206-1696.

From Durban, take the Cato Ridge exit off the N3, turn left at the top, and follow signs to Highlands Resort. The Youth Day celebrations will be advertised along the way!
