The Democratic Alliance congratulates the sixteen young dancers from Kathu who made the Northern Cape proud at the recent DanceStar World Dance Masters held in Croatia. They achieved four first place, two second place and four third place awards in the competition, which featured more than 7 000 participants from 30 countries.

 

 

 

It is remarkable that, of the approximately 850 dancers representing South Africa, all sixteen representing the Northern Cape hail from the same dancing studio in Kathu. It seems that the town will no longer be known only as a mining town, but also for the quality of its performing artists.

 

 

 

The performing arts is a valuable sector for the creation of sustainable jobs, but it is sadly untapped in the Northern Cape. With an expanded unemployment rate of 41%, more needs to be done in the province to promote art as an avenue of job creation.

 

 

 

A DA-government will allocate more funding for the creation of cultural spaces, bringing art to communities, and investigate tax incentives for companies that donate to the arts.

 

 

 

We need Total Change in 2019 to build on the performing arts as an avenue of job creation.
