We are excited to launch our new online programme #DiscoverTavaziva.
It includes TavTorials, a series of online Intermediate classes led by Artistic Director Bawren Tavaziva, film, footage and interviews. We rediscover and talk about works from our archives, and start new conversations with artists. Everything is FREE of charge for you to access.
Look out for unseen footage from our studio rehearsals, productions and digital explorations with Notch software technology, a programme we have been using for our next show.
We are screening extracts from some of our most acclaimed productions, accompanied by commentary from Bawren Tavaziva providing a context to each of the works. You can currently watch:

TavTorials – Online classes
We want to reach out to you and inspire you to move from the comfort of your own home! Bawren has created 3 different TavTorial classes available on our TAVAZIVA DANCE OFFICIAL YouTube channel, all are around 40 minutes long and incorporate Bawren’s unique synthesis of ballet, contemporary and African dance styles. The classes are physically challenging and will raise fitness levels – a great way to train while we take this time away from the studio.
Intermediate Warm-up, 40 mins
African Dance, 40 mins
African and Contemporary Fusion, 40 mins
A Tribute to Steve Biko, 4 mins
