This truly is an inspiring story of a ballet school like no other. Situated in Kibera, Nairobi, a slum home to 700,000 people, this wonderful project is run and supported by Anno's Africa.
Students here have been given a chance to become accomplished dancers, some even winning scholarships to further their education.
