Join the beat: South African Festival of Dance comes to Lehman Center

Stomp your feet and get into the rhythm at the South African Festival of Dance at the Lehman Center for Performing Arts on Oct. 8.

Two dynamic dance companies — the Gumboots and Pantsula Dance — share the stage for a pulsating, rhythm-filled evening of urban street dance. Featuring 20 dancers with live musicians, these companies use dance to respond to cultural and political issues in their communities by conveying real-life stories of hard work, human struggles, and longing for a better life. These communicative dances have become an important part of restoring, revitalizing, and preserving South African Culture.

South African Festival of Dance on Oct. 8 at 4 pm. Tickets range from $25 to $45, and $10 for children for any seat.
