Whether theyre slamming the floor with their feet, or slapping the side of theirgumboots with their hands, the speed and precision creates an energy that floods the room.'Fringe Review: 'The cast performs continuously, fully invested in sharing their love of dance and their culture from South Africa. Changing pace and genre of dance movement these six dancers exchangeglances, and grins break out into joyous smiles. They seem like family and exude wonder and awe in performing together. This transfers to the audience and you cannot help but smile.'Three Weeks Edinburgh: 'It brings something to the UK that you dont see a lot of here. And you cant denythe sheer energy and power of this performance I was drawn in by the dancing, especially the gumboot, and these performers have RHYTHM.'Audience Reviews:A really fun show. Very entertaining with some great dancing mixed in with humour. A great family show.
