Hartford Zulu Dance Troupe at the annual Summerhill Stallion Day
HARTFORD TRADITIONAL ZULU DANCERS
It’s official. The Hartford Zulu dance troupe is the best in KwaZulu-Natal having won the provincial competition this past weekend. Next stop, Joburg, where they will compete for the honour to represent South Africa at the World Traditional Dance Championships to be held later this year. Having competed at international level before, coming third in Tokyo and second in Hong Kong, and in the process beating some of the best dance troupes in the world, this is an amazing achievement for our little troupe... the self same troupe who perform for our guests every weekend in the Hartford gardens.
Growing up in the Mooi River district, their determination to rise above poverty and helplessness has catapulted them onto the international stage.
This is yet another another amazing story from our area, showing that with determination, bags of sweat, and enterprise we can achieve anything.
Now they’re off to the city of gold, Egoli, with big dreams, carrying their cowhide drums and hose sticks, and of course the beat of Africa.
They leave with warm wishes from all at Hartford House, Summerhill Stud and Vuma Horse Feeds.
Onwards and upwards!
