With their creative dance skills and dynamic stage presence, The Professionals (Pantsula dance group) are taking performing arts by storm in South Africa. The Professionals is a Pantsula dance production consisting of different skills and personalities. The Professionals were formed in 2005 by Sbongiseni Brendon Jaca. Sbongiseni is the main choreographer and one of the dancers in the group. His love of dance has inspired him to keep the group going and to encourage his fellow group mates to work hard and to achieve as much as possible. They have big dreams and hope to encourage more South Africans to do what they love. Biography It is difficult in South Africa to make a career from dance but The Professionals aim to change that and take Pantsula to the next level. The aim of the group is to get the township children off the streets, to encourage them to learn new skills and to not get caught up in the negativity that there is in the world these days. There is too much crime, drugs, poverty and sadness in South Africa. We want to bring the light. In 2010 The Professionals started developing and teaching the young kids of Ntuzuma Richmond Farm. They did not just teach the young ones Pantsula but they also taught them how to rely on one another as they teach them how to work as team. They did not stop there, they continued trying to open doors for the upcoming entertainers to be recognized in South Africa. While they were teaching they were learning. They took the top students and danced with them, they become a well known dance group in the city of Durban. The professionals won many competitions and lost some.
