South Africa takes centre stage in the People’s Republic of China this November when Joburg Ballet tours a showcase of the best classical and contemporary dance as part of the China-South Africa Year ceremonies in Beijing, Shanghai and Liaoning Province. Joburg Ballet will showcase this dazzling touring programme for audiences at home on 8th and 9th November from 3pm to 5pm at the Joburg Ballet Studios in Braamfontein.

Joburg Ballet’s visit to China in November and December celebrates the company’s growing stature as a major South African arts institution, acknowledging Joburg Ballet’s expanding role nationally and internationally. Joburg Ballet’s international travel has amplified the company’s global footprint with dancers currently performing in Denmark, Ireland, Cuba and soon China, cementing Joburg Ballet’s place as a world class African ballet company.

Following the tremendous success of Joburg Ballet’s productions of La Bayadere and The Nutcracker Re-Imagined, the company showcases its versatility in a diverse programme demonstrating the skill and talent of Joburg Ballet’s accomplished dancers and choreographers.

South African audiences can look forward to kick-starting the festive season with a glittering selection of Joburg Ballet’s popular showpieces in an afternoon headlined by dancer and choreographer Kitty Phetla’s Carmina Burana and highlighted with pure classical sparkle from the world’s greatest ballets.

Ticket holders are invited to watch the company take warm-up class from 1pm to 2:15pm followed by delicious tea and treats before the China Tour Showcase at 3pm.
