DANCE FOR JOY (article first published : 2005-05-16)

Taking place in Durban from May 7 to 28, the National Creative Arts Youth Festival, initiated by Professor Elizabeth Sneddon and now in its 16th year, is a celebration of the achievements of the youth of South Africa. Directed at young, predominantly school-going people, the festival has achieved remarkable success in building a broad multi-cultural base and participation.

Dance for Joy takes place at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on May 21 at 15h00. This is described as a wonderful and fun-filled programme for dancers aged five to twelve and underscores the fact that a training of the child’s creative potential cannot begin too early.

Audiences will evidence the wonderful spirit of joy that comes with the participation in a challenge as refreshing and innovative and exciting as a programme so ably convened by Stav Bozas.

Tickets are available from Computicket.

More information from the Festival Director, Ann Curry, on 031 201 9312 or 031 661 751 or e-mail: ncayf@iafrica.com

The success and the meritorious educational goals of the Festival have been made possible by the emergence of like-minded sympathisers such as The Israel South African Foundation, The Aaron Beare Foundation, Pick ‘n Pay Retailers, The Anglo American Chairman’s Fund, The Fulton Trust, The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, Distell (Pty) Ltd, The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, The Durban Institute of Technology and The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.
