(Nomfundo Hlongwa)

Moving into Dance (MIDM) moves across the country, having accepted 65% of its student body for 2014 from outside Gauteng and 93% of the 2013 class have been placed in the industry either studying or performing.

The student selected from KwaZulu-Natal is Nomfundo Hlongwa (20) from Kwa Mashu. She matriculated in 2011 at Newlands East Secondary School and attended the Kwa Mashu School of Dance for two years as a part time student. After matric she was given the opportunity to go to Jazzart Dance Theatre and was there as a trainee, beforfe she auditioned to be a 1st year student at Moving into Dance Mophatong.

MIDM continues to impact the dance industry through the Performing Arts Training Course and values the contribution that graduates over the years have made in the dance industry in South Africa and abroad. From servicing the basic need of developing skills in youth who do not have the resources to study further or enter the economy, MIDM has changed the lives of individuals, homes and communities.

Through this training, MIDM services a large portion of the industry and provides a strong foothold for talented youth to access the industry and the economy.

MIDM's programmes are made possible through support from the National Arts Council (NAC), Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), AngloGold Ashanti, CATHSSETA and Dancing for the Children.
