WATCH: Mzanzi Ballet celebrates return to the stage with Hyde Park flash mob

The Mzanzi Ballet dancers staged a flashmob appearance in the Hyde Park shopping centre in Johannesburg on Saturday, 20 November.

The Mzanzi Ballet company welcomed their return to the stage with a flash mob performance at the Hyde Park shopping centre in Johannesburg on Saturday morning. 

Dirk Badenhorst, director of the dance company, says the performance was part of the build-up to their performances in December, which will be the first full-length stage productions since the onset of Covid-19 lockdown regulations.

“My motto in life is to never give up, and we have to keep trying to find ways for performers to work,” says Badenhorst.

Badenhorst says the dancers are delighted that level 1 lockdown regulations allow them to perform again.

“To ensure the safety of our audience from Covid-19, there will be rules and regulations that will be strictly adhered to during this blast of a show,” he notes.

These include that audience members’ masks need to be up at all times, that they sanitize their hands, and that physical distancing is maintained.
