    I have always loved Ballet even from a young age, my mom took me once and people were shocked that she brought such a young child to the ballet and she kept offering to go home but I wanted to stay and I watched the whole ballet even though it ended late at night. I would love to see this as I haven’t seen a show for quite a while.

  8. I love anything on stage. I’ve seen the best of SA, Tlhoriso, Greg, Vuyani dance company, Dance umbrella and everything dance. I’d like to take a friend of mine so she can experience something new and something new that she’s going to love. I think this show will do just that.

    Although I have not slipped on a leotard in years, I am still in love with ballet. I danced from the age of 5, to the age of 18, under the superb tutelage of Joan Kilfoil. I would absolutely love to watch South African talent live! #BigDreamsBigCity

  20. Kairo Jansen van Vuuren

    I remember doing ballet as a young girl and ever since it’s been a passion. I’m a pre school teacher and always find myself sitting in ballet lessons with my learners and secretly going along with the moves. I’ve been begging my fiancé to take me to this but finances are tight. This would be an amazing date for us and it would allow him to see a different side of me watching my eyes glow in awe.

  21. The images are beautiful! As a dancer myself, it is amazing to see such beautiful and inspiring works from local artists on our stages! So excited for this project!

  22. So looking forward to talking my daughter to see this production. She trains in ballet, modern and tap and would love to see these ballet dancers in a more contemporary show with cross over of styles!

  23. I danced with Eugene and the Moving Into Dance Complany before. It will be a great honour to show my love and support to such brilliant artistry 😁 Such love for the ARTS! Halala
