PORT ELIZABETH – Port Elizabeth audiences once again can expect to be captivated and entertained by talented dancers belonging to the city’s many and wonderful dance studios as they perform at the Friendly City Dance Festival (FCDF) in June.

Now in its 4th year, FCDF has grown tremendously and organisers are thrilled with the continued and growing support that the festival has received from dance studios in and around the city.

The festival prides themselves in offering a friendly platform to all of their dancers allowing them to showcase their talent. The festival also proudly boasts an array of age groups with the youngest participant making her stage debut this year at a mere 5 years old.

With 18 studios taking part, an impressive total of 833 participants will grace the stage in various dance styles including ballet, tap, contemporary, hip hop and jazz. The festival also has a rhythmic gymnastics section for the more bendy individuals.

“Our Friendly City Dance Festival is known to be the ‘friendliest show in town’. We love meeting dancers and teachers, and making them feel at home and a part of our ‘Festival Family’”, said Monica Hewitson, chairlady of FCDF.

FCDF will run at The Savoy Theatre from 9th – 19th June and will be open to the public following a booking system in accordance with COVID-19 protocols.
