About Pantsula Dancers

It began in Alexandra and Sophiatown, two townships in Johannesburg, groups of older men engaged in informal street dance competitions in the jazz culture of the 1950s. Gradually the dance-form spread throughout South Africa. By the 1980s, pantsula was practiced by black South Africans of all ages and was no longer limited to men.

Pantsula's roots consists of tap dance, with elements of jive, tribal African dance and gumboot. You can see everyday gestures included as well, like dice-rolling. Panstula's trademark is its footwork; described as intricate and rhythmic, where feet twist, shuffle and stomp. Pantsula communicates stories through movement, but those early pantsulas were as much about style as dancing.
