The fabulous NGO that unites animal-loving dancers is back after three years, ready to pirouette their way to sterilisation for more dogs in South Africa.


South Africa (29 June, 2023)—Dancers Love Dogs, the fabulous NGO supporting animals, is back after three years of hibernation due to the Pandemic. And, they might just be back and better than ever in 2023, set to showcase more shows and unite over 580 dancers sharing their skills to bolster sterilisation.

A special set of comeback shows across the country will see hundreds dancers raise funds for a mass sterilisation project that helps a plethora of animals beyond dogs, as they have done over the years since 2011.

Led and initiated by animal activist and former professional dancer Brigitte Reeve-Taylor, Dancers Love Dogs has raised over R4 million for the cause in the past thanks to the annual showcase, helping nearly 20 000 animals become sterilised.

And, even though the shows weren’t possible over the past three years, the public benefit organisation collaborated with the National Sterilization Project helped continue the Dancers’ work.

The shows will see troupes of dancers from various schools, studios and companies, including Gift of Dance, Basic Black, Dance for Change and Stellenbosch Dance Academy. All proceeds go to the sterilisation project that includes cats, pigs, rabbits, and donkeys.

The dance show will take place in Cape Town before soaring to Durban and Johannesburg. You can grab tickets here.
