Our guests from Ethiopia were recently treated to a traditional gumboot dance from the Seven Fountains Gumboot Troupe.
Seven Fountains is a small community that is situated close to Lalibela. The children in this group are between 8 and 13 years old and have been dancing for almost two years! They have such an enormous passion for dance and practice their routine everyday.
Charmain, head of Lalibela Community Development, has taken these children under her wing and has provided them with their uniforms and gumboots.
Any gratuities left by guests for the group are used towards an outing of their choice. For their next outing the group will be going to a nearby Hotel where they will spend the day in the swimming pool and enjoy a traditional South African braai.
