- Nkosinathi Mzima is from Brakpan and dreams of being an international ballet dancer
- He has been accepted to study at the Elite College of Excellence
- The Angel Network sponsored his uniform, textbooks and exams and are looking for funding for his first year
12-year-old Nkosinathi Emmeka Mzima is one step closer to achieving his dream of becoming a world-renowned ballet dancer and performing at the Sydney Opera House, thanks to the generosity of the Angel Network who are helping the passionate young dancer fund his schooling at the Elite College of Excellence.
Nathi was accepted by the prestigious school which prides itself on training young dancers who are ready to perform with established Ballet Companies around the world. The school also provides learners with a quality education to ensure their future success, Briefly.co.za found.
Nathi says he has been passionate about dancing for five years. He fell in love with the art form when he was in grade two and discovered that the school he was attending at the time had dancing lessons available.
Nathi and his family immediately realised that ballet is his calling when he obtained an incredible 96 percent in a ballet exam.
He hopes he can continue making his family proud of him by continuing to excel at what he loves.
The humble dancer is from Brakpan and lives with grandmother as both his parents have passed away. His grandmother supports him but is struggling to provide funding for the college.
Unable to ignore the dancer’s dreams, the Angel Network have set up a crowdfund account to help Nathi and his grandmother pay for the first year of the elite school's tuition, particularly now that the Angel Network have ensured his uniform and extra school costs will be taken care of.
He recently performed in Documintue, a short mini-series which showcases people’s lives, talents and cultures. Nathi’s talent astounded the filmmakers who immediately knew the young man was destined for great things.
Social media users were blown away by Nathi’s talent and lovely personality.
The Angel Network is a volunteer organisation run on social media that tries to give ordinary people a helping hand.
