Katleho Lekhula

Dancer

I have always been passionate about the arts, my passion began in primary school and continued to high school. One of my first performances was in Mmabana at the Calabash Festival in Taung. As I gained more experience I started performing at the likes of Macufe which is where my theatrical professional performance began. I would later perform at Tsoho Festival in a piece choreographed by Reginal Danster on a production called Droits De lhomme. I joined Foot Expression Dance Company and was part of  Inside Out under mentorship of Thabo Rapooho, this piece was staged at Dance Umbrella. I have worked on Moving Into Dance Mophatong’s Triumph as well as In Time, The Newspaper mentored by Tshepiso Dasilva Phetlhu at Oppenheimer Theatre and Mcebisi Bhayi ‘s Uhambo Lwam.

I joined Vuyani Dance Theatre’s training programme in 2016. I have performed numerous corporate productions with the company and in productions such as Joys of Sharing directed by Greogory Magoma, Lulu Mlangeni’s Page 27, Phumlani Nyanga’s Beyond. Currently I am a Senior Dancer and I continue to tour with Gregory Maqoma’s Via Kanana in collaboration with Via Katlehong and Cion: Requiem of Ravel’s Bolero.
