A PINETOWN Indlondlo Zulu dance group is looking forward to their trip to the United Kingdom where they will train members of the Simunye Zulu Dance Project.

The group consists of young men and women who have performed internationally in various countries. 
Founder of Indlondlo Zulu dancers, Msizeni Mngadi said the aim of the invitation is to train African dancers in England.

"They invited us to train them on how to perform a Zulu dance.
“They have performed in various cities in the UK, and also other countries, but because they are based there and some of them were born and grew up there, they do not have a clear understanding on how to perform a Zulu dance," he said.

Mngadi explained that this invitation shows that their group is doing very well as it has attracted the attention of global communities.

"During the recent Aids conference in Durban, we partnered with a Spansula Dance Group from Langa in Cape Town.
“We performed our dance together and it was very interesting to see two groups doing a different dance at the same time using the same drum beats," he said.

This group was formed in 2010 and has performed in Durban at
uShaka, the Durban Playhouse and on MSC cruises.

Mngadi also said that not all of their group members would be go to England as the main aim is not to perform, but to train.
