Season 13, Episode 8

‘When you’re there, you dance your stress out!’ Young artists from the dance group called ‘Gugulethu United We Stand’ – talk about what dancing, and the organization mean to them living in an area with detrimental social problems. They call the after-school project founded by music producer and DJ, Judy Mkoko, and Zolani and Sindiswa Vokwana their ‘second family’. The dancers support their own families with the little money they make from performances, but this does not come without difficulties. Relatives who may not have the same opportunities may be jealous. Listen to their story of ‘temptations outside, jealousy inside’. Filmed in Gugulethu, Cape Town, April 2023.
