It seems like an unlikely story, an English woman running a ballet school in a South African township, but Fiona Sargeant is not a normal woman and the school she runs is not a normal ballet school.
Zolani, a township in South Africa, is marked by extreme poverty and inequality. For children growing up there, the future holds little hope.
But this school has done much more than teach ballet classes. Through ballet, Fiona has not just given the young students purpose, self-discipline and exercise, but through her selfless work, lives have been changed. Some of her former students are now dancing on scholarships in New York and London. What Fiona has given the children of Zolani through her ballet school is hope.
Fiona, once a professional ballet dancer, teaches these children classical and contemporary ballet 5 days a week. She provides them with meals after dance class, which may be the only food they have, and facilitates their homework. She drives them around in her small car, as there is no other transport available, organizes performances and fundraising events, and above all, she offers them the opportunity to go beyond ‘trying to survive’, to make them aware that dance can be their ticket out of poverty. Nobody could have given more to try and improve the lives of children living with such hardships.
But in 2016, at the age of just 51, Fiona was diagnosed with cancer. In February of this year, Fiona received the devastating news that her cancer was inoperable.
Fiona is an incredible woman, and she has come to peace with the fact that she has just weeks to live, but what breaks her heart is that without her super-human efforts, the school will close.
This is where we can help!
Together, our plan is to raise enough money to keep Dancescape operating and helping children achieve their dreams long after Fiona is gone.
So let's grant Fiona's last wish! Let's ensure that the school and her legacy will continue after she has gone. And in doing that, we can keep the dreams of all the children that go to the school alive. For this is more than a dance school – this is a place of hope.

We welcomed a special guest teacher last night to work with our students on some specific partnering movements. Lifts, and turns, and balances, oh my! Thank you, Michael Eikenberry for helping teach our students how it’s done!
This level of intensive training is achieved through dedication and lots of hard work. Ask any of these dancers how much effort it takes to attempt these skills, and they will tell you it’s not only a lot to remember, but a lot of trust in your partner, and confidence in your own abilities. Dance helps us grow these talents and gives every dancer something to strive for. Perfection doesn’t exist here, but we sure try to get there every day!
Want to gain more strength, flexibility, confidence, musicality, rhythm, perseverance, stamina, coordination, and connection through mind and body? Try a dance class! It’s all of this and so much more!
