Phoenix on South African breakfast TV

4 Oct 2023

Forget This Morning and Good Morning Britain, the only morning breakfast TV we’re talking about is the Expresso Show!

Expresso Show is the feel-good South African breakfast show. It’s broadcast LIVE weekdays from 6am-9am on SABC 3 from their Cape Town studio. Today our jet-setting dancers Hannah, Yasmina, Dylan, Aaron, guest dancer Teige, and choreographer and Jazzart Artistic Director Dane Hurst were invited onto the show to promote Jazzart Dance Theatre’s 50 Years of Dance Celebratory Festival.

Our dancers performed two exquisite excerpts from Requiem which is being re-staged as part of the festival at Artscape Theatre from 12 – 14 October.
