This vibrant and energetic show is an awesome new tourism highlight on the schedule of visitors to Cape Town. The dancers and musicians showcase the real deal - from the beautiful African maidens to the powerful warriors and gumboot dancers to the swinging kwela jazz and ending with the modern pantsula kwaato. Perfect for an evening out with family or friends teamed with dinner at any one of the many restaurants in CBD.

Spectacular is the word! We enjoyed every moment of it. These very talented performers were so full of energy, their timing perfect, fantastic choreography, wonderful music ... I may be gushing but it's had that effect on me! Don't miss it, whether you're a visitor or a local!

The show provides an energetic and playful look into the dance styles which took route in South Africa in recent history. It showcases everything from traditional Zulu dance to the more modern Pantsula!

The theatre is based in Long Street, which means you can see the show before heading to a traditional African restaurant in the area for the complete experience! A trip to Cape Town would not be complete without seeing this show.
