Namibia doesn’t take performing arts as a career-Theron

• By Martha Nangombe

THE journey to becoming a professional dancer is an endless learning curve, from exploring different music genres to trying to get your name out in an industry where dancers are not given the same opportunities as other creatives.

While it is said the shortcut to happiness is through dancing, the adage sits in well with Caitlin Theron who finds her stars in dancing.

The 20-year-old started her dancing career at the age of 5 and later on at the age of 13 years, had dedicated classical ballet classes at the National Ballet School for the Checchetti Society and is now studying music at the University of Namibia (Unam).

Theron who has been exploring her bodily movement and limits for the past 2 years has sought to break new grounds by trying out different genres such as kizomba, hip hop, amapiano, ballroom, Afro and contemporary.

However, according to the dance enthusiastic dancers the local entertainment industry does not give dancers opportunities to showcase their skills and there is a lack of interest in promoting all types of dancing in the country.

“I’ve taught classes from toddlers to wedding couples and have gained so much experience and have seen diversity in people. I would say dancers do not get paid enough for their hard work, time and effort.

It’s a whole creative process of building a choreography and telling a story.

The entertainment industry does not, in my opinion, put in the same effort in giving dancers a chance to showcase their skill set like other arts sectors do.

In other arts sectors, there are much more events, like competitions for vocalists, visual arts and musicians but to my knowledge dancers are not equal to these components.
