A young ballerina is ready to leap into action as she and her classmates hope to attend a special festival in Scotland later this year.

Tamara Williams (15) from Strandfontein has been selected to dance at the Edinburgh Arts Festival in August and is well on her way to earning the trip of a lifetime.

“Tamara comes alive on stage. She started dancing when she was 5 and moved to the Cafda dance company. When they closed down in 2015, the teacher started her own studio known as 34/18 based in Grassy Park where Tamara still is,” says her mother Chantelle.

Tamara does Ballet, hip-hop and contemporary, recently also partaking in a gumboot class.

“She is quiet in person but really comes alive on stage. I remember her first school concert and I looked at her and told her dad she was going to cry, but after that she loved a stage. Really shy and quiet but alive on stage,” she says.

The studio recorded a video audition and submitted it to the Edinburgh Arts Festival and were accepted to perform.

To help raise the R40 000 she needs to get there, her family and dance school have partnered with the Cape Town Jive Comedy Festival.

The group is currently selling tickets for the show on Monday 16 July, which will take place at the Baxter Theatre.

Tickets cost R190 each, with R50 per ticket sold by her mother going toward her trip.

The 13th annual Jive Cape Town Funny Festival, delivered by Turkish Airlines, takes place at the Baxter Theatre from Tuesday 10 July to Monday 6 August.

The popular month-long comedy festival is strong on variety and speciality acts, whilst highlighting some of the top stand-up comedians in the country, resulting in an evening’s worth of world-class entertainment and laughter.

The Funny Festival was founded by comedy entrepreneur and publicist Eddy Cassar. What started from humble beginnings has developed into an annual winter comedic tonic for many Capetonians. Launched way back in 1997, the festival has developed into the largest of its type in the country and is respected by performers as a “blue-chip” event.

This year’s international cast includes Norway’s greatest artistic export, London’s top magician and Freddie Mercury lookalike Mario, Queen of the Circus. V Tickets for the show in aid of Tamara’s trip can be purchased from her mother Chantelle by calling 078 073 3676.
