LEAP Maths and Science School is based in the Pinelands area. The school formed a group called Amatshitshi, in 2004 which started with a group of girls but now has male members as well. The group has been a part of the Cape Town Carnival for two years now and has rehearsals every Thursday. They perform on every second Friday at the school’s community meeting and school events in the communities that LEAP works with.
The group was working with choreographer, Bheki Ndlovu on a flash mob for LEAP when Bheki introduced the group to Angie, the Carnival’s Community Facilitator. Angie came to the school and saw the students performing, and then suggested that they should join the Cape Town Carnival’s participating communities.
