The CTCB is renowned throughout South Africa and internationally for the diversity of works in the repertoire and the dancers for their inimitable energy and style – characteristics that stamp the company as uniquely South African. The CTCB has a long-standing practice of developing South African choreographic talent. Many of our foremost South African choreographers were given opportunities early in their careers to create works on the CTCB and its forerunners. These include Veronica Paeper, Christopher Kindo, and Sean Bovim, who still create extensively both here and abroad, and more recently Lindy Raizenberg, Kirsten Isenberg and Robin van Wyk. The CTCB is committed to the development of choreographers and to the creation of uniquely South African and African ballets.
