Amoyo Performing Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Hout Bay. We launched on the 1st March 2015 giving school going children the opportunity to attend dance and drama classes after school. Amoyo is far more than just a Performing Arts School. The children who attend come predominantly from impoverished homes within a community striving against drugs, alcohol, domestic and community violence, gangs and extreme poverty. Many children who attend Amoyo live in disinterested, unsupportive and sadly often abusive homes. We strive to offer a welcoming, caring and nurturing environment demonstrating strong social and moral principles encouraging and thanking the children for making good choices. We educate and encourage parents and guardians to allow their children to enrol in our after school programme to stay away from risky behaviours. Appreciation and gratitude are key words in our philosophy, and represent an ethos, that is spoken about daily within all our classes.
