South African Dancers Share Culture and Hope

The Kliptown Youth Project (KYP) dancing troupe visited Concordia for a full day of traditional South African singing, dancing, and culture sharing. Each Concordia elementary school class had a chance to meet with the dancers individually to learn more about the group’s purpose as well as join in on some great dancing and music.

KYP’s founder, Thulani Madondo, was named by CNN as one of their 2012 ‘Heroes’ of everyday people changing the world, as KYP helps youth of Kilptown, SA rise out of poverty.

“I liked the gumboot dancers because they taught us how to dance. It was cool that they made their own music with their boots, hands and their drum.” - Bella, Grade 3

Omnia Sol- “Everywhere Light”

‘Omnia Sol’, which means “everywhere light” in Latin was the title for our most recent concert. Music for this concert focused on themes of hope, resilience, adventure, and joy. With music from the classical era, the romantic era, spiritual, gospel and jazz, (and a few favorite movie themes thrown in), Concordia students brought “light” to our Concordia and Hanoi community through their performance Friday.

A special thanks to Mrs. Nancy Durance, Concordia’s upper school music teacher and our music students in the middle and high school choirs & chamber ensemble orchestra for all their hard work in beautifully bringing this concert together.
