Directions to Dance For All

Philip Boyd, a former principal dancer with CAPAB (now Cape Town City Ballet), founded Dance for All in 1991 as Ballet for All. This was to build on the legacy of Cape Town ballet chief David Poole, who started teaching ballet in the townships of Cape Town in the mid-80s. Ballet for All began its life in a classroom in Gugulethu with 34 children participating. These numbers quickly multiplied and with the recruitment of more dance teachers, Boyd expanded the programme to include a diverse range of dance forms and in 1995, Ballet for All became Dance for All.

Today DFA runs an Outreach Programme of daily dance classes in ballet, African, contemporary, musical theatre and Spanish dance for over 1000 children and youth in the historically disadvantaged communities of Gugulethu, Nyanga, Khayelitsha, Athlone and the rural areas of Barrydale , Montagu, McGregor, Bonnievale and Nkqubela near Robertson. Beyond teaching dance, these classes promote the personal development of the children by encouraging their creativity, self-discipline and confidence. DFA's students receive first-class training from a talented and diverse teaching team.

In 2005, DFA formed its own Youth Company (DFAYC), which launched officially in November of the same year at the Artscape Theatre. The DFAYC had a unique signature style presenting a dynamic neo-classical/afro-contemporary repertoire, which included some of their own works as well as diverse pieces by established local and international choreographers.

In 2009, Philip Boyd, the CEO & Artistic Director announced the re-naming of the Dance for All Youth Company (DFAYC). The company is now known as the InSPIRAtions Dance Company, after the late Phyllis Spira (OMSG), Prima Ballerina Assoluta of CAPAB Ballet and the Assistant Artistic Director of the DFAYC up until her unexpected death in 2008. Spira’s legacy, her inspirational influence and her incredible contribution to dance both in the professional arena and in the community, will be perpetuated in and through this vibrant company.
