Bring Odwa & Lwando to LINES Ballet

Lwando Dutyulwa and Odwa Makanda from Langa township in Cape Town, South Africa are two talented and hardworking young men pursuing ballet as a passion and as a path out of poverty. They are looking forward to participating in the Alonzo King LINES summer ballet program to improve their skills and connect with other dancers and find opportunities to collaborate with dance companies.

Your donation will be used by the Gugulethu Ballet Project to sponsor Lwando and Odwa's visit. Besides covering the cost of travel, insurance, accommodation, and ballet supplies, your contribution will bring hope and inspiration to these young men and their communities. Thank you for your generosity.
