Urban Pantsula Dancers
Urban Pantsulas is an Urban Based Crew that choreographs, teaches and lives the Pantsula culture in Alexandra, Gauteng South Africa.
Pantsula dance is commonly known as a traditional township dance and mostly used as an entertainment instrument amongst townships youngsters. However, for the Alexandra based youth dance group, Urban Pantsulas this dance is a career and a way of generating income to putbread on the table.
Urban Pantsulas is a Pantsula dance group with 11 members that was established on the 18th of March 2014 and registered as a Non-profit Company on the 20th march2018.
It was formed by four young intelligent dancers Thabang Ramphisa (22), Milton Tshabalala (21), Doctor Mabunda (23) and Sphelele Ngqulunga who saw the needof initiating such an organisation and wanted something that would keep them away from bad company and substance abuse.
This dance group has proved to be one of the best Pantsula groups in the country since its inception and has won major competitions, working contracts and partnerships with big corporations in the country.
Our plan is to conquer the world with our talent and encourage young dancers to work hard because we believe that Isipantsula is the most sophisticated and artistic world class dance only found in South Africa.
‘A lot of negativity has been attached to Pantsula culture in Mzansi townships, so we are trying to change this narrative.
