Dancer gives back to the youth

BRYANSTON - Bryanston resident, Courtnae' Paul, uses her dancing talent to give back to the younger generation of dancers by hosting workshops around the country.

 

“The workshops that I conduct for the younger generation give them hope and the assurance that they can be anything that they want to be and to be true to who they are,” Paul explained.

Paul is a well-known female breakdancer who has grown to be respected in the dancing fraternity. She is the main dancer and choreographer of the kwaito routine in the current Cell C advert.

“I have always been an energetic person and I started gymnastics at the age of six, soccer at 10 and started dancing professionally when I was 15,” Paul said.

She is currently the choreographer and lead dancer for local artist Da L.E.S, a Bounce Inc SA ambassador and the only female breakdancer, or B-girl, in South Africa to be sponsored by international brands such as Skullcandy, Neff and Red Bull.

“I would not say I knew that I would be a professional dancer when I was young but I enjoy what I am doing now, one would say it is my calling,” she said.

She has choreographed and opened for international artists such as Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Jay Sean, Akon, Fatman Scoop, and has toured and choreographed for local artists such as Toya Delazy, Reason, Lloyd Cele, Tamara Dey and AKA.

“I don’t plan to stop what I do and I will continue to help and inspire others with my dancing talent,” she concluded.
