Ballet: ‘A symbol of new South Africa’
“Focusing on ballet, that was not possible (before), nothing to think of in the township,” Trimbos said. “They have big dreams. Those things are now open for them.”
“The youngsters, they want to do it,” Trimbos said. “It’s a symbol of new South Africa, really. It’s progress, big progress.”
Beautiful gallery here.
