Festival of South African Dance October 26

Two distinct South African dance traditions born from the perseverance of the human spirit.


Two deeply rhythmic ensembles, Real Actions Pantsula and Stimela “The Gumboot” Musical, uplift, unite, and tell a story as they entertain and follow their historical tradition of spreading awareness of socioeconomic and political challenges through performance. These communicative dances have become important parts of restoring, revitalizing and preserving South African Culture.

Reserved Seating: $55, $40, $35, $25
