Young Ballet Dancers Take over Streets of Kenyan Slum for Show

NAIROBI – Young ballet dancers who go to different schools but all hail from the Kibera slum area took to the streets of the Kenyan capital on Friday where they showed off the skills they have learned as part of a special project.

The dancers usually practice at a space belonging to Project Elimu or at school, but on Friday they got the chance to express themselves at home in Kibera.

Started by Michael Wamaya, Project Elimu aims “to champion quality education for children living in informal settlements and beyond, through extracurricular activities in schools and by equipping teachers with tools to incorporate 21st-Century skills development in their classrooms,” according to the project’s site.

Project Elimu offers weekly after-school clubs, with 413 children taking part in ballet classes, the project’s site said.

The project charges fees at private schools, which allows it to offer classes for free to children who live in informal settlements.
