Jazzart Dance Theatre


Jazzart Dance Theatre, resident in Cape Town, South Africa, is a professional contemporary African dance company.


Jazzart is the oldest contemporary dance company in the Cape, if not Africa. It has been at the forefront of contemporary dance development administratively and artistically, within the context of democratic practice, serving marginalised communities in particular.


Sonje Mayo opened Jazzart in 1973 as a dance studio specialising in modern jazz dance. From inception, Jazzart welcomed dancers from across the racial spectrum - a factor that was to become increasingly important in later years given the nature of South Africa's political history.


Sue Parker took over in 1978 and established a small, professional ensemble named the Sue Parker Jazzart Contemporary Dance Company. The studio evolved into a sizeable contemporary jazz school and part-time company, which performed sporadically due to irregular funding. In 1982, Sue handed over to Val Steyn and the performance group was renamed the Jazzart Contemporary Dance Company.
