Afrika young

February 2023, I had the priviledge to meet the dancers at JazzArt Dance Theatre in Cape Town, a company making dance and training young generations for over 49 years.

They define their mission as ´to challenge dance status quo and social stereotypes through contemporary dance training and performances that celebrate the uniqueness of our bodies as creative instruments which give voice to our African stories’.

The new generation of training dancers are full of talent and brightness. In this editorial I photographed a group of them, they shared more about their passion for dance and how they see their future.
