  • From the "Ghetto" to Atlanta: A Dancer's Journey

    This is by far one of the most touching stories we've ever read! Check it out...

    "A South African ballet dancer from a poor township outside Cape Town has been given the chance to train in the United States -- all because of a documentary film, and an email from a caring viewer.

    "Ghetto Ballet" is a documentary that chronicles the lives of four young ballet dancers living in one of the poorest towns on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa....One of the four dancers featured in the movie was Sibahle Tshibika. In the film, she is seen failing to make the cut for the dance company -- the end of her dream, or so she thought." ~ Quote: CNN
