The Dance Academy of South Africa, or DASA, strives to achieve excellence in dance, especially ballet, by aspiring to world-class standards. We are constantly training and developing our teachers and students, optimising the development of the whole child by using a compassionate and caring approach.
The DASA ballet syllabus ranges from Tiny Tots for 4 to 6 year olds through Grades to Advanced Performance for senior students. DASA also offers an exciting array of medal dances, including ballet, modern and national dances, which provide an opportunity for students to perform and experience different dance styles. Examination grading varies for each grade. Tiny Tots and Petit Performer Medal Dances are awarded Merit if successful and Pre-Primary candidates are graded, but percentages are not given. The rest of the Grades from Primary upwards are awarded percentages, which range from a Pass (40%) to Distinction (80%+). Medal Dances are awarded a symbol from D to A++ and receive a medal mounted on a ribbon.Continue reading →

The Association of Mouth and Foot Painters (Pty) Ltd is not a charity. Marketing of products are done by the administrative office in George in the Western Cape only. No fund raising actions or door-to-door sales on behalf of the mouth and foot painters are ever undertaken.
Although the Association has copyright on all artists’ works, original paintings remain the property of the individuals. From time to time artists stage one-man or group exhibitions where they sell their paintings at prices set by themselves.
Finances of the Association are derived solely from the sales of products. Salaries to members and scholarships to students are paid out from this income, as well as necessary administrative costs like salaries, manufacturing, mailing, taxes and rental.
The Association of Mouth & Foot Painters adopts a neutral attitude in all religious, ideological, racial or political matters. Preferential or discriminatory treatment in relation to religious, ideological, racial or political position of a member is thus excluded. The Association is a world wide organization and consists of all races. Entry into the Association is given to an applicant by his artistic talent – not by colour. There are artists of all races and creeds in the Association.Continue reading →
The Association of Arts Pretoria has been a leading force in the visual arts since 1947. And years later, we continue to enable creative expression and cultivate a love for the visual arts.
SO…WHAT DOES OUR ART ASSOCIATION DO?
In short – we allow the arts to thrive through our active community of artists and art lovers. We also like to exhibit the best works we can find – in all genres. Our exhibition space boasts optimal architectural design – the natural light that permeates the exhibition space allows you to view art the way it was intended. Evaluations and restoration of art works form part of our activities and we host special events like walkabouts, the Potter of the Month-exhibitions and book launches.
On top of that, we are the founding member of the monthly Pretoria Arts Meander and we are deeply involved in art competitions – most notably the New Signatures Art Competition (the longest running art competition in the country).
The Association for Visual Arts prides itself on consistently playing a prominent role in facilitating cultural interaction. We have been providing a platform for artists and art lovers for decades. Our programme of exhibitions, talks, conferences and events continues to champion some of the most insightful emerging and established voices in contemporary African art.Continue reading →
