Dance Centre Kenya (DCK) will be showcasing the groundbreaking rendition of the beloved ballet classic Coppélia at Braeburn School Gitanga Theater this weekend.
Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Award recipient (Community Engagement) DCK co-founder and artistic director Cooper Rust is one of the spearheads behind the production.
In 2012, former professional ballet dancer Cooper travelled to Nairobi to volunteer as a dance instructor. Profoundly moved by her experience, she founded Artists For Africa (A4A), a US registered non-profit organization to support arts education in Kenya.
Cooper relocated to Nairobi and in 2015 co-founded Dance Centre Kenya. She immediately managed to mobilize multiple families to support underprivileged students in taking classes for half the price of the regular fees which initiated DCK's Sponsorship program.
Cooper has the incredible day-in-day-out dedication to make the difference in the lives of the children and teenagers she has taken under her wings. At the same time she has put all her passion, artistry and hard work ethics towards the growth of DCK to where it is now, with all its performances.
