Betterchoice Gumboot Dance is a community-based youth project established in 2012 by Eric Xezu based in Site B Khayelitsha. Betterchoice has 35 participating members of boys and girls, ages ranging from 7 to 15 years. The program focuses on teaching children Gumboot and Traditional style dance and offers a homework club to assist children with their studies. The mission of Betterchoice Gumboot Dance is to provide children with alternative after-school activities to combat the influence of drugs, gang violence, and alcohol abuse, which runs rampant in the community. The program offers these vulnerable children a “BETTER CHOICE” by giving them a productive and creative outlet for expression and entertainment. The after-school homework sessions provide a safe, productive environment to pursue their academic goals.
