gumboot_dancers

Audiences are always gob smacked by this electric, up beat and rhythmic performance. Discover the many rhythms of the human body! Gumboot dancing is a century old tradition which originated during the mining era of Johannesburg, South Africa. Miners communicated with each other by slapping their boots and stomping their feat while drilling and digging hundreds of metres below the surface. Back at the township they used this technique to entertain each other, giving birth to the gumboot dance. Dancers wearing gumboots, create rhythms by slapping boots and bodies, using voices and stamping their feet. Creating a visual rhythm that is both rhythmically unique and powerful.
