The FLATFOOT Dance Company has an established track record of dance education and development in KwaZulu-Natal. About 1 000 youth participate at the organisation. Previous financial resources from Sibaya enabled FLATFOOT to establish a Waterloo Dance programme that has been active for four year with over 40 participants, as well as an ADD programme with 15 participants, catering for youth aged between 17 and 21 years. In 2018, Sibaya provided further funding in support of FLATFOOT’s new Junior ADD pilot programme, which aims to promote the development of township female children towards a sustainable arts career.
