MAP delivered and intensive two week dance programme, in collaboration with the Ubuntu Education Fund centre in Port Elizabeth. We worked with 60 untrained students, teaching them the basics of contemporary dance technique and working with them to devise a 10 minute choreography, performed in-house to an audience of friends and family. We witnessed an incredible transformation in the students over the course of the programme. It was fantastic to see them develop an appreciation for the beauty of the dance they created, to see them develop the quality of grace in moving through complicated movement patterns and it was incredible to see an overall sense of achievement and self-worth in their efforts.
