More South Africans able to take up ballet

For decades ballet was mainly the preserve of the rich, but now a diverse range of people are enjoying the dance form.

    Ballet in South Africa is still predominantly white, partly because the lessons are so expensive.

    There are only a few black professional ballet dancers, but now ballet is making an appearance in poor neighbourhoods.
