Anyone is capable of more than they could ever imagine, but it all begins with giving them a chance to show what they are truly capable of. My name is Sinethemba Mathe and dance is my life.
I come from a small community named Ennerdale, which is situated in the south of Johannesburg. Within this community, I had to find a way to push myself as an individual and not be another statistic in drug abuse and other issues. I began dancing at a young age but it was tough getting into dance schools because of my situation at home. I have been passionate about dancing so I began learning from videos and watching TV in order to better my skills. My dance career kicked off when I joined Art of Dance Studio, which is also based in Ennerdale. This is the reason why I was able to take part in Dance Star South Africa 2017, which allowed me to qualify to represent South Africa in Croatia, May 2018.
The costs include accommodation, flight, competition fees as well as spending for when I am in Croatia. Being able to go to Croatia is truly important to me because it has always been a dream to work with international choreographers. It is also a great platform to allow others to see what South Africa has to offer. With this, I would also love to be able to inspire young ones in my community to show them that anything is possible if you work hard everyday.
Maya Angelou once wrote, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths that we take, but the moments that take our breath away." Going to Croatia will be that moment that takes my breath away.
