My name is Michail Labans and I just completed my Bachelor of Music in Dance degree, through which I specialize in the pedagogue stream. I completed the degree in the prescribed minimum time of 4 years.
Through my time at UCT I've accumulated so much knowledge in the teaching field and found that I absolutely love creating safe spaces for dancers to express themselves through the artform. I love that I'm able to carry over what I've been taught and build on my teaching skills. Being able to leave humans in a better state than I found them is the most rewarding.
This is why I want to pursue honours studies in finding ways of eradicating negative perceptions about males who dance and how fixed masculinity affects the potential of using dance as an educational tool.
There is a requirement of paying a yearly fee and this year at UCT, I need assistance in paying off the amount of R18000 so that I can obtain my degree and register for my honours studies.
I believe that I can make significant contributions to the world of dance and education, but I need your help to do it.
