The annual Pandora Showcase performances were created in 2020 as a platform for participants in Joburg Ballet’s Ballet for Adults programme to perform for family and friends while raising funds for charity and for the ballet company during the pandemic.
It has since grown to include different age categories in a variety of dance and music (instrumental and vocal) performances by studios in Johannesburg. Raffle tickets are sold for amazing prizes with the inclusion of an auction. Stalls are set up in the foyer of the Lesedi Theatre at the Joburg Theatre complex so that audiences can support small businesses.
Funds raised are split between Joburg Ballet, Teddy Bear Clinic for Abused Children, Kitty and Puppy Haven and Cheryl Lyn’s animal rescue foundation.
