Mandela Day Dance 2015

posted 18 Jun 2015, 04:01 by Scottish Dance Cape Town   [ updated 14 Jun 2016, 13:13 ]

Mandela Day on 18 July is an annual international day adopted by the United Nations. It is more than a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy; it is a call to action for people everywhere to recognise their individual power to take responsibility to change the world around them.

Clan Colquhoun would like to invite you to join us once again for an evening of fun dancing in Fish Hoek, on Monday 20 July, the closest "Fish Hoek Monday" to Mandela Day on the 18 July and help celebrate the idea that each of us can make a difference in our community.

The programme of dancing will last 67 minutes and we will break for tea, coffee and biscuits.

There won’t be any cost for the evening but you are asked to bring along tinned or other non-perishable food which will be distributed to those in need in Masiphumelele or dog and kitty food to TEARS in the Valley or the SPCA. We will also be collecting books in reasonable condition which are destined for the HELP THE RURAL CHILD charity bookshop.


When:                       Monday 20th July 2015
Time:                        19:45 dancing to start at 20:00
Venue:                      St Margaret's Anglican Church Hall, corner Kommetjie Road and 5th Avenue, Fish Hoek
Dress:                       Informal with a touch of tartan or your favourite Madiba shirt. Men please wear your kilts and show off those knees!
What to bring:            Your food gift and books in good condition.

The dances are mostly old favourites or dances that have featured on recent programmes. (The dances are part of Fish Hoek’s core repertoire of dances for this year.)
