Former radio youth talk show presenter - Kumari Roanna Bala, has been involved with media and entertainment since she was a child. Now she’s on the path to not only provide meaningful entertainment which will appeal to young and old, but will also raise funds for disadvantaged children so that they have the opportunity to study at tertiary education level and once they find employment, then sponsor yet another child to follow his/her dreams.

To accomplish this, Kumari has established the company TruRo Productions which will focus on dance, entertainment and youth development. The teaching of life skills, leadership and most importantly being true to themselves is at the core of the company. “We decided that TruRo would be the ‘go to place’ if you wanted to be real, unique and comfortable in your own skin,” says Kumari. In addition, “being Indian, we thought it was fitting to have the name TruRo, which resonated with the indentured labourers who came to South Africa on the Truro ship.”

#Dance 2015

As a choreographer, Kumari concentrates on Bharatanatyam, modern and contemporary dance while Gopala Bala specializes in hip-hop, break and film dance… and the result? A show which promises to be spectacular, appeal to the young and old alike while being thoroughly modern with an Indian touch.

‘#Dance 2015’ takes place on 25 April at Thekweni College, 262 D’Aintree Avenue, Asherville 7:30pm for 8pm. The cost is R150pp.
