Having recently celebrated its 2nd birthday, Chillstep Sundays, a popular youthful, artistic and lifestyle fixture on the Botswana calendar has diversified the movement‟s portfolio by introducing a Dance and Theatre fixture. This is part of the series of workshops the movement has introduced for 2018 as part of their youth and talent development campaign.
The addition of the Dance and Theatre aspect although new, is well within the objectives of Chillstep Sundays. Chill Step has since inception been one of the most consistent and impactful platforms in elevating youth in arts and the industry in general. The introductory Dance and Theatre Workshop which will take place at the Little Theatre at the National Museum on January 27 2018 from 10AM until 1PM, will be the first of numerous opportunities to turn the local Dance and Theatre scene into an even more lucrative and sustainable career.

“The introduction of the Workshops is part of a long term plan to introduce and affect behavioral change in an industry which has seemingly faced challenges in making a lasting connection between talent and business. „We would like to reach as many people as possible with these workshops, hence entrance being free, although because of the venue, seats are limited”, said Lead Projects Consultant of Flowetry Media House; Mr Drew Chadhall.
