We at Lesole’s Dance Project (LDP) believe that pride in one’s heritage is a vital component of positive self-esteem. Moreover, we believe that traditional South African dance is a powerful tool for building confidence, enhancing self-awareness, and developing pride in the cultural and individual identity of South African youth.
It is the goal of LDP’s International Arts in Education Program to instill confidence, self-respect and discipline in program participants through a traditional- and modern-dance training series. This goal will be achieved by reintroducing our youth to the richness and beauty of South African traditional dance in a rigorous yet fun learning environment.
