THE AFRICAN CYPHER

Street dance in South Africa is a complex, convoluted underworld that, like most sub-cultures, exists as a sum of its participants. In our townships, ghettos and suburbs exist a group of individuals who form part dance crew - part group therapy. Whether it is Isipantsula, B-boying, Krump or Sbhujwa, for many of the dancers the situation in their communities is a struggle for purpose, identity and the confidence. Whatever this dance thing is, it is beautiful: part circus, part soul. No matter the context or style, we all ultimately dance for an audience of one.
