Oscar Buthelezi needs IMMEDIATE financial support

Personal message

Moving into Dance Professional Company Member 27 year old Oscar Buthelezi is an International and local award winning dancer/choreographer from Vosloorus who has been selected from dozens of applicants from across the world to compete in Germany.  

This week (May 20th) Oscar was awarded a Naledi Theatre Award for Best Choreography in a Play/Musical category for The Color Purple.

Oscar needs to raise R 60 000-00 for 4 air tickets and 4 visas (he has managed to raise the funds to cover all other costs) and we have one week to help me make his dream a reality. 

Please support Oscar  to take up this challenge and bring the award home.   Experiences like this will grow and develop Oscar's unique talent and enable him to showcase South African talent.

As 1 of 19 finalists invited to compete in the 33rd International Competition for Choreographers in Hanover, Germany from 21-23 June 2019 he needs urgent financial support to get there to compete.

The selected invited work “Road” scooped a double award at the Kurt Joos International Award for choreography in Essen, Germany in 2016 with Oscar becoming the first African to win this prestigious award.   Please view  this work and interview with Oscar on YouTube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4NlEpWwiFU 

For the price of 4 coffee's we can each donate R 100-00 and 600 donations will get Oscar and his team to Germany and make us all proudly South African. If you are unable to donate please assist by sharing this campaign.

The Moving into Dance Mophatong Trust Logo

Moving Into Dance (MID) is South Africa's premier professional, full-time, contemporary African dance company and training academy, with a national and international footprint.

MID was founded in 1978 and continues to hold fast to the original ethos of founder, Sylvia ‘Magogo’ Glasser, who started her life’s work training youth from disadvantaged communities and equipping them with skills which could be used to overcome poverty.  Since its inception as a non-racial cultural activist dance company, MID has had a major impact on the sociocultural transformation, as well as the economic empowerment, of South African youth boasting incredible alumni amongst South Africa’s top performing artists. Through the organisation’s Performing Arts Training Course (PATC), young talented dancers between 18-30 years old, from some of the most poverty- stricken areas in the country, are identified and brought to Johannesburg to be part of the South African Qualification Authority (SAQA) Accredited Training Course. The students are housed, fed and clothed and are not only trained in dance and movement, but also educated in business, communication skills, computer training, career development skills in related environments, research ability and dance facilitation and choreography.
