Ons gaan België toe in Augustus 2018!!!!

Personal message

The Wapadrand Boeredansgroep (Folk dancing group) was founded by Danette Smith in 2004. It was, and remains, her dream to introduce traditional Afrikaner dance to as many people as possible.

A dream she had since the establishment of the group was to take part in Folk Dance Festival overseas. We now have the opportunity for this dream to become a reality as we received an invitation to take part in the "Volkskunstweek" in Sint Niklaas, Belgium hosted every second year.  

The aim of the hosts of this festival is the showing and sharing of folk dancing and traditions from all over the world. Groups that have taken part are Germany, Spain, Sweden, Hungary, Italy, Austria and England.

We have had discussion with the host organisation and both parties are extremely exited that we can form part of the programme. The programme consists of daily performances at various venues in Sint Niklaas. it also includes informal get together where the groups can interact.

The group aims to leave for Belgium on the 5 August and returning to South Africa on 18 August 2018.
We want to convey a professional and truly South African image to carry our moto "Ons sing, praat en DANS in Afrikaans" with pride!

Please help us.
