Dancers (and Radio people) don’t cry

10/06/2011

Afrika Ablaze and Bush Radio 89.5 FM brings you the Re-run of Dancers Don’t Cry – Bigger and Better, produced and directed by Glenda Jones.

Dancers Don’t Cry premiered at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in March 2011, with matinees and evening
shows. All four shows played to packed houses, standing ovations and rave reviews. Comments ranged from “A truly brilliant show” to “The best dance/drama I’ve ever seen” to “Brilliant dancing, outstanding acting and a beautiful story.”

Requests for a re-run of this dynamic production poured in, and, it was recently announced that a re-run of Dancers Don’t Cry is
heading for the CTICC on the 2nd July 2011.

A squad of 60+ exceptionally talented dancers will be performing in the magnificent auditorium at the prestigious venue of the CTICC.

Dance pieces include Krumping, Hip-Hop, Ballet Funk, Contemporary and Cabaret. Every dance piece has been hailed as a masterpiece and a must see!

The story is about the journey of 3 young dancers who find themselves trapped in a volatile world of dance politics.

Nationally renowned producer, director and choreographer; Glenda Jones, is ecstatic about the re-run. “It is a dream come true for
the multi-talented cast of Dancers Don’t Cry and a wonderful opportunity to present a show that has captured the hearts and minds of those who got to see it. Don’t miss this run!”
