Our volunteer partners are SAGEnet (volunteers from Germany), African Impact (volunteers from all over the world), Standford University (students from Stanford university in USA) and Maquette University(students from USA).
The volunteers stay with DFA for a period of three months to a year and work two hours to seven hours a day. They teach dance in communities of Gugulethu, Nyanga, Khayelitsha and Langa. They also help with administration, wardrobe, public relations, marketing and fundraising. In addition to contributing their skills, the intern’s experience at Dance for All is a cultural exchange. For example, they learn about our students’ living environment and pick up a little language of their own.
