About the Event
An Explosive Stampede of Song and Dance! Presenting the talent of over 30 performers drawn from South AfricaƒºÁs shantytowns—each one is a triple sensation. African Footprint combines dance and song in an incredible spectacle. The show melds the hypnotic heartbeat of the African drum with the soulful saxophone and the haunting pennywhistle, marrying Afro- and Euro-centric music and dance to create an exhilarating series of numbers featuring Kwela-jive, traditional gumboot, tap, contemporary ballet, and hip-hop pantsula! The Riverdance of Africa!
