SENIOR dancers from the Ellen Bunting Dance Academy are representing the Eastern Cape at the South African Championships of the Performing Arts in Rustenburg this week.

The dancers compete over a ten-day period from April 1 to April 10 and are competing in various styles including contemporary, lyrical, hip hop and tap dance.

“This is a first for the Ellen Bunting Dance Academy; however the girls are a strong group of performers and I have no doubt that they’ll grow from this opportunity, not just as individuals but as a team. They’re going to be exposed to various art forms from around the country, which will inevitably help them in developing their individual strengths and hopefully encourage them to challenge themselves for next year’s competition,” said teacher and owner of the Ellen Bunting Dance Academy, Simóne Buchner.

Buchner added that the South African Championships of the Performing Arts aim to develop and co-ordinate programmes designed to enhance the well-being of the Performing Arts Industry within South Africa, by creating an infrastructure to ensure that all contestants have a gateway to become a world champion.
