About Samanthaclaire Ncube, Founder Of The Dance Space
Samanthaclaire Ncube has been teaching dance since before going to dance school; in gyms and other studios.
After attending dance school, Samanthaclaire danced for Mophato Dance Theatre and has had an opportunity to be taught further by exceptional performers from South Africa, West Africa and even Hollywood (received training from LA based choreographers who have worked with Beyoncé!).
She explored dance further in Europe and America and has come back to Botswana with the biggest desire to create amazing dance work, to teach, choreograph and use dance in ways she has seen it done around the world.
Her story inspired the opening of The Dance Space and is sure to inspire other future dancers in Botswana.
