Dulcis Howes- Pioneer of Ballet in South AfricaThis well-documented biography records the life of Dulcie Howes whose ambition was focused on the single-minded pursuit of the goal she had set for herself: to establish in South Africa a professional company of international stature. She started by founding the University of Cape Town Ballet School in 1934. It was one of the first university dance departments in the world. Richard Glasstone captures her personal qualities as a teacher and mentor and her experiences when taking ballet on tour throughout Southern Africa, from Cape Town to within striking distance of the Belgian Congo.
