Rwanda Pirouette

23 years after Rwanda’s genocide; peace, stability and ballet

In 1994, over a million people were killed in Rwanda when members of the Hutu tribe began to slaughter their Tutsi neighbours. Over 20 years on, citizens work every day to prevent the deadly schism from reopening in their society and everyone simply calls themselves Rwandan. RTD visits the first ever ballet school in Rwanda, where the young dancers strive to realise their dreams and give their country something better to be famous for than genocide.
