Combined Dance Show

My girlfriend is a professional Spanish dancer and she took part in a combined show tonight together with the Jazzart company and a whole bunch of others. It was hectic. I'm not really a big dance fan and so I only really see Spanish dance (for obvious reasons :->) so it was really interesting to see modern, tap, African, Spanish, Indian and a few others all in the same show and with a couple in the same piece even.

One of the most amazing pieces, though, was definitely one from a company that apparently has a number of physically disabled dancers. The male dancer was wheelchair-bound! This was something I had never even conceptialized. I always enjoy experiencing these kind of things for two reasons. First of all, corny as it sounds, it really helps me to remember to be thankfully for what I have and secondly it is amazing to see people not let anything stand in their way, especially where most people would simply ive up.


  • Dancing for the disabled is growing steadily in South Africa. One of the missions of our National Body is to promote the "lesser" sports....ie. dancing, golf, tennis etc.
