Charity profile

Jikeleza Dance is a community-based dance and performance project working with children and young people from Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg townships in Hout Bay on the Cape Peninsula.

Jikeleza delivers dance as a living example of how it is to be different. It’s dance is about dignity, discipline, hard work, motivation, persistence, standard-setting, team-work, respect, story-telling and joy.

And around that dance, music and performance Jikeleza has built a series of support projects that offer children and young people a haven from the multiple issues that assail them daily.
