Our flag ship Rumba in The Jungle was cancelled, but we are happy to report that our documentary, Rumba in the Jungle, The Return, screened at the Encounters International Film Festival recently.

Thank you SA Dance Community for being part of this unforgettable Dance Journey. We look forward to the safe return of Dance and will keep you posted on the fabulous events we have lined up for you.
