Storyline

The African Cypher 'When we dance we find purpose with our bodies' - Tom London (Soweto's Finest) Street dance in South Africa is a complex, convoluted underworld; that like most sub-cultures, exist as a sum of its participants. In our townships, ghettos and suburbs exist a group of individuals who form part dance crew - part group therapy. Whether it is Isipantsula, B-boying, Krump or Sbhujwa for many of the dancers the situation in their communities is a struggle for purpose, identity and the confidence. Whatever this dance thing is. It is beautiful, part circus / part soul. No matter the context or style. We all ultimately dance for an audience of one. Written by Anonymous
