About Us

Background

Morithitho Foundation was formally registered in 2014 (# 132-442 NPO) but has been running projects in the arts and entertainment industry for the past 5 years. Our belief is that the world is constantly changing, and we also have to adjust to evolving trends in our sector. With the removal of physical borders, the emergence of a global market invokes the need for South African local dancers and artists to be equally competitive in order to capture the same clientele targeted by artists all over the world. This can only be achieved if we produce exceptionally competent, versatile and world-class dance acts artists of all genres.

Our contribution to the arts and entertainment sector is through mentorship, training and development of world class dancers able to survive and excel through the rigorous demands of the trade and mark themselves as champions who can make a living through their passion. It is our heartfelt wish to diminish mediocrity and produce artists with an excellence, superiority and distinction amongst their peers and therefore compete and gain the same employment and business opportunities available for artists the world over.

Working with a team of highly qualified and experienced coaches and administrators, Morithitho Foundation endeavours to achieve their vision as that one Academy that changed the face of the arts.
