Annual dance showcase returns to Joseph Stone

Dancers from Zama Dance School in Gugulethu will participate in this year’s Showcase of Dance at the Joseph Stone Auditorium.

The Western Province Dance Association (WPDA) will be presenting Showcase of Dance at the Joseph Stone Auditorium in Athlone from today, Wednesday October 11 to Saturday October 14.

This iconic 500-seater theatre has been home to the Eoan Group since 1966 when their creative space in District 6 was declared a “whites-only” area under the Apartheid regime.

The WPDA is thrilled to be hosting this annual showcase after a hiatus brought about by the pandemic.

Among the dance schools and artists performing this year will be the Eoan Group, Zama Dance School, Northern Dance Academy, Shelby Ray Dance Collective, Ingrid Carlson School of Ballet, Versatile Dance Academy, New World Dance Theatre and more.

On Wednesday and Thursday, shows start at 7pm; and on Friday and Saturday there are shows at 4pm and 7pm. Tickets, available through Quicket, are R120 each.
