Indoni at Shanghai Tourism Festival 2019
For the first time ever, the African continent was represented at the 2019 Shanghai Tourism Festival.
Organised by the Mzansi One Tree Development Group, well-known singer Vicky Sampson teamed up with the Indoni Dance Academy and the Hybridt Dance Crew to participate in the Festival.
Indoni choreographer Sbonakaliso Ndaba and Hybridt choreographer Liesle Hendricks collaborated to create a vibrant, colourful dance to the popular South African song ‘One Land’, performed live by Vicky Sampson in the Opening Ceremony and Parade. In addition to a parade, the two groups performed in a mixed programme of their own works on different stages over the four-day Festival.

Investing in our Youth
Enduring unemployment and poverty in South Africa means that 4 million black youth have no prospects after school. Millions of ‘freedom’ generation kids grow up under worse material conditions than their parents did during the Apartheid era.

The amount of talent and creativity in South African schools is astonishing. Liberating that talent is the aim of the Indoni Dance Arts & Leadership Academy. A vital component of our trainees’ education is to rekindle hope, and provide dignity and life skills to young people.
