New World Dance Theatre is a youth development NPO that uses dance and theatre as a form of encouragement and skills training for youth from previously disadvantaged areas.
NWDT's professional team has been invited to the U.S.A to do an artistic and teaching exchange. With this campaign, we are hoping to raise sufficient funds so that we are able to pass on the knowledge gained to the youth we are working with.

New World Dance Theatre
New World Dance Theatre consists of four coloured dancers from Cape Town, South Africa. Who have been invited to collaborate with an American Company (Karlovsky & Company Dance). In a performance and teaching exchange, in March 2020.
New World Dance Theatre is a NPO that primarily works with disadvantaged youth from Cape Town. As dance teachers we would like to use this international invitation as a way for us to gain new skills that we could use to improve the skills of the youth New World Is working with.
We need funding for the following:
* 4 return flights to and from U.S.A
* Accomodation for 2 weeks for 4 people
* Per diem for 2 weeks for 4 people
* Travelling costs
* Per diem for training opportunities and classes
