OPRAH WINFREY LEADERSHIP ACADEMY FOR GIRLS
The OWLAG Dance curriculum has been under the leadership of Lucia Anne Cunningham since 2013, directing and choreographing the Academy productions ‘We are Women’, ‘Souls of our Nation’, ‘7 Deadly Sins’ and ‘ Screaming Whispers’. Through dance, students are taught a vocabulary which foster a deeper appreciation of the art and how to connect music to movement, transforming the classroom into a space uninhibited expression and enjoyment.
The Academy teaches the IB curriculum (Grade 8 to 10) and the IEB curriculum for Matric, receiving 100% distinction for Dance in 2015 and 100% to tertiary dance institutions in 2014. We are members of the Royal Academy of Dance and the Theatre Dance Association.
Candidates from the ‘Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls Dance Company’, selected by Lucia Cunningham, have boosted the Art of Motion student casts for ‘rOmpelstiltskin (2016), BlankSpace & nOtenkraker (2017) by Sisters Harris’.
