MASTERCLASS

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MASTERCLASS/WORKSHOP IS NOT OPEN TO BEGINNERS!

This masterclass will open up Mantsoe’s technique of GOBA –  the bend, to be grounded and to plié. The technique is based on the control of the movement, energy and the use of breath within movement. This articulation is based on the traditional forms from Zulu, Pedi, Sotho and Xhosa styles and forms which have been translated by Mantsoe and have evolved over time and within his dance work.
