Give a child the power to move beyond the impossible

Through the magical medium of dance, we provide children in Gugulethu with life skills, self confidence and purpose, so that they can move above and beyond their circumstances.

Dancing on the common ground of genuine connection

We focus on sustainable empowerment based on strong and authentic relationships. By building relationships with the children, their families, their teachers and the Gugulethu community, we can offer ongoing support and encouragement.

We really believe in supporting children in our country to grow creatively wherever we can. We get to do that through Move For Two!

I have seen my learners who dance with Move For Two move from low grades to average grades since being in the program because they are more motivated to learn. Move For Two encourages the children to work hard in their academics if they want to stay in the dance program.

I cannot believe the talent that our children have. They're so passionate about what they're doing and I am forever grateful for all that Move For Two invests in our children.

Skills For Life

We teach life skills and self-help initiatives that include: personal health care, peer pressure training, conflict management, time management, listening skills, leadership, positive thinking, communication, critical thinking and recognising diversity. Our volunteer doctors run workshops with our children addressing: sex education, HIV and AIDS education, peer pressure, bullying and abuse.

Advanced Training

We have qualified teachers that train children in accredited dance syllabi. Children complete exams and will ultimately be able to teach in their own communities.

Entrepreneurial Empowerment

We give children the chance to perform on stage with all proceeds made feeding back into their community. We run an annual showcase, which is an opportunity to teach our children how to write a budget, break even and make a profit. This empowers our children by teaching them basic entrepreneurial skills.

School Support

We teach at local schools and at our own venue to increase our access to the children. At schools, we work together with the students' teachers to monitor their academic progress and offer encouragement and support where we can. Our lessons are taught in English, which further enhances the students’ English speaking skills.
