Inspired by her passion for ballet and ever caring nature for underprivileged children, Gerda Malherbe was instrumental in founding Centre Ballet Ministries in 2013.
Centre Ballet Ministries sets out to give those children who do not have the necessary funds to take part in ballet, the opportunity, not only to learn ballet, but to experience the sheer joy of dancing.
There are currently 25 students attending the centre. Gerda encourages her students to be the best that they can be, and reaches out to children in rural areas surrounding Clarens, as well as children from Clarens and Kgubetswana.
Gerda teaches in the rural areas on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and in Clarens on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Stop in at the NGK hall in Clarens to watch the classes which take place from 15h00 – 17h30. (It’s a heartwarming experience.)
If by any chance you know of children that would like to take part at the Centre Ballet Ministries please feel free to contact Gerda on 082 568 7117 or email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
