South Africa is home to a rich mix of cultural traditions that reflect the vibrant diversity, complex history, and inventive creativity of its nearly 56 million citizens. Pantsula dance style was born of street culture in South Africa’s black townships, influenced by Sotho dances and American jazz and hip-hop, and inspired by everyday events. Real Actions Pantsula, founded in 1992 by Sello Modiga in Orange Farm Township near Johannesburg, features a diverse young troupe dedicated to education and social justice alongside their phenomenal skills as performers.
Connects to Illinois Learning Standards in Fine Arts, Social/Emotional Learning, Social Sciences, and Science.
Recommended for grades 2-12
