Itumeleng Tsoeu

Dancer

I studied Dramatic and Visual art as part of his NSC certificate, but I was equally curious about the performing arts which led to me performing in the play Woza Albert and  Nothing but the Truth as part of my NSC final exam. After passing my matric I was inspired and developed an interest in dance and persued my curiosity at Lejweleputswa Art Centre.

A few months later I was involved in a seven week workshop held by Moving into Dance Mophatong, we would later be a part of IN TIME mentored by Muzi to be performed at the Openheimer Theatre. The performances were extended to Johannesburg where there were other workshops.

In 2016, I had the opportunity to join Vuyani Dance Theatre as a trainee and my first performance was JOYS OF SHARING which was a collaboration between Simphiwe Dana, Wouter Kellerman and VDT. As part of the company I would perform in corporate productions and later was casted in Gregory Maoqma’s Cion: Requiem of Ravle’s Bolero. I have also performed in Four Seasons , Skeleton Dry and MAYHEM. Other choreographers I worked with at Vuyani are Lulu Mlangeni in Page 27, Otto Nhlapo in Gister Maoba and Interpulations and Roseline Wilkens’ Cry the Beloved Eldos and The Knot.

I am currently a Junior Dancer in the company and continue to tour internationally.
