Future Female Leaders
- 2 Schools
- 57 Girls
This programme supports and nurtures the overall well-being of young females. It actively engages them with the purpose of growth, evolution and personal elevation – physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Sessions take place in an empathetic and supportive environment and incorporate movement to achieve skills development and character building.
A holistic approach is used to encourage participants to realize their potential, gain perspective and thrive in their true authentic self in order to become a better version of themselves, better leaders and better human beings overall.
Dance, both indigenous and contemporary, has long been an important means of personal and artistic expression in South Africa. It plays a central role in traditional storytelling, ceremonial practices, recreation, socialisation, improvisation, and community sharing.
We currently collaborate with the highly efficient Megan Goliath, building our Future Female Leaders Project at Christel House in Ottery, Cape Town. The dream is to implement in more schools after Covid. Megan is a versatile professional dancer, performer, teacher and life coach. She is passionate about empowering females and building future leaders through a holistic approach of movement and methodology.
The purpose of the programme:
The holistic approach of the facilitator supports and nurtures overall well-being. The programme actively engages learners with the purpose of growth, evolution and personal elevation – physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Megan provides an empathetic and supportive environment, in which she incorporates skills development and values. Character building is indirectly learnt through movement and tools of coaching are implemented to lay strong foundations for everyday life.
‘My purpose with this holistic experience is to offer an opportunity for females to
realise their potential, gain perspective and thrive in their true authentic selves that awaits them to become a better version of themselves, a better leader and overall better human being.’
- Dance/movement promotes good health by improving cardiovascular fitness,
increasing blood flow, circulation and heart rate, strengthening the muscles and improving posture.
- It encourages discipline, co-ordination, improvisational skills, sensory and spatial awareness, and concentration.
- It builds confidence, self-esteem, awareness of body and awareness of the energy you bring into a space.
- It helps to communicate creative freedom, emotions, thoughts, creating and exchanging ideas, working in teams, understanding diverse cultures.
- It brings awareness by identifying rhythms and improves musicality.
- Apart from the physicality of dance/movement, it is a valuable medium for instilling important life skills such as empathy, kindness, gratitude, resilience, respect, support, humility, and compassion.
