DANCE FOR YOUTH (article first published : 2005-10-11)

In celebration of the youth of Durban, KZN Dance Link presents Dance for Youth, a large-scale youth dance performance on October 16 at the beautiful Godís Golden Acre, Khayelihle, in Cato Ridge.

Led by award-winning choreographer from Phenduka Dance Theatre, Sbonakaliso Ndaba, performers are drawn from dance groups and dance outreach programmes throughout KZN from Cato Ridge to KwaMachi.

Around 100 young people have been in rehearsal during the September school holidays to produce a brand new dance work will be presented for the first time at Godís Golden Acre. The day begins at 12h00 with a musical welcome from the KZN brass band of the Field Band Foundation, followed by an open-air performance of Dance for Youth. The performance is free thanks to funding from the National Lotteries Distribution Fund.

Guests are invited to pack a picnic basket and spend the day celebrating the creativity of the children of KwaZulu-Natal.

Godís Golden Acre is an estate in the hills of Cato Ridge, which is home to 90 young people and babies who have been affected by HIV/Aids. Take the Cato Ridge exit off the N3 and follow signs to Highlands Resort. Dance for Youth banners will guide the route.
