Pantsula culture. In the 60s and 70s, under the apartheid regime in South Africa,Black rural populations are displaced from large cities and regrouped in municipalities.It is in these ghettos, where unemployment and crime prevail, the Pantsula culture is born, with which all the youth of these municipalities are identified. Like Hip Hop in the United States and Europe, Pantsula culture is a lifestyle that encompasses fashion, music, dance, gestural codes and conversation.

Like the hiphop, it finds its field of expression in the street.Pantsula dance a kind of hip hop not acrobatic but virtuous For their speed, percussive clappers with iron shoes, palms and rubber boots.Workshop participants will enjoy an introduction to these dances and their Pantsula culture. Screaming, whistling, crushing! A party full of dynamism and fury of life.
