Dancers at waterfront

Dance performance at Cape Town’s V & A waterfront.

Before coming to Cape Town, I was under the impression that Victoria and Alfred waterfront was the place to see LIVE performers. This is not the case on most days. We visited V & A waterfront twice during our stay. On our initial visit, the atmosphere was quiet. It bore a close resemblance to Toronto’s harbour front centre and St. Lawrence Market. On our second visit, we were accompanied by a local South African family (related to one of our connections in Canada) and they took us to specific areas at the water front. Luckily this was a long weekend and multiple groups (musicians, drummers, dancers) were performing throughout the venue.

The video above is one of two performances I was able to record. I particularly loved this dance because it is being performed right by the harbour, with great views in the background.
