Wilkens a professional Ballroom and Latin American dancer in
Championship level and 7 times undefeated title owner. After a number of years I was then introduced to an entirely new world of dancing when I was accepted at Moving Into Dance Mophatong in 2010 where I was trained in
African Contemporary Dance. In 2011, I joined Vuyani Dance Theatre as a trainee and quickly moved up the company ranks to become a Junior Dance and now I am a fully-fledged Senior Dancer. I have since worked with different choreographers that helped shape my career into what it is now. These include the likes of Themba Nkabinde, Kefiloe Morand, Sbonakaliso Ndaba, Luyanda Sidiya and
her current director Gregory Maqoma. My highlights have been part of the 2010
FIFA World Cup, ANC Centenary Celebration in 2013, The Metro Awards 2013,
Vienne Jazz Festival 2013, perfoming at the Presidential Inaugurations 2014, Golden
Hearts Awards and the Drug Abuse Campaign in Soweto . I have been travelling and performing in and around the world like Sweden, Germany, France, Finland,
Amsterdam, New York and my place of birth South Africa. As part of Vuyani’s emerging voices I created two group pieces, Cry The Beloved Eldos in 2018 and The Knot in 2019.
