Mandela Day Dance 2017

Post date: May 31, 2017 12:10:31 PM

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 17 July, the day before Mandela Day and help celebrate the idea that each of us can make a difference in our community, that everyone can take action against poverty.

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 17th July 2017

Time: 19:45 dancing to start at 20:00

Venue: St Margaret's Anglican Church Hall, corner Kommetjie Road & 5th Avenue

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 part of Fish Hoek’s core repertoire of dances for this year. and are mostly old favourites or dances that have featured on recent programmes or that will feature on upcoming programme for 'Dancing in new places' tour.
