Alexander Sinton High School in Crawford boasts the best high school dance crew in Cape Town – again.

Its team took home top honours in a dance crew competition, called 021BDC, at the Joseph Stone Auditorium recently.

The team from Prince George Primary School won the primary school category.

The competition, now in its fourth year, is a platform for the youth to showcase their talent, as well as develop team-building skills, discipline and creative problem-solving.

Alexander Sinton has won previously as well. Previous winners of the competition organised by Project 021 have also come from Lavender Hill and Bellville Technical high schools.

180 primary and high school pupils from across Cape Town took part in this year’s event.

A packed auditorium witnessed an amazing display of talent. In addition to the competitive dance pieces there were also special guest artists who performed solo dance pieces, inspirational songs and Latin and ballroom numbers.

The judges had a tough task in choosing the winners of five hours of competition, but they eventually selected the three top schools in each of the categories.

After deliberation, and adding to the drama by keeping the audience in suspense, the winning crews were announced.

The top three crews in the primary schools category came from Plumstead Preparatory, Levana Primary and Prince ­George Primary schools.

In the high schools category the top three crews were from Northpine (XO Kiddz), Bellville Technical and Alexander Sinton high schools.

One member of the Alexander Sinton crew, Tiffany Braaf, also won a Damelin College bursary to the value of R10 000, thus making her day twice as special.

“Project 021 continues to create opportunities to develop pupils through creative arts and has already started preparing for our poetry andamp; motion event on 24 September,” David Cornelson, Project 021’s managing director, says.
