Mzansi Arts Development Ensemble (MADE) is a non-profit and community driven organisation registered on 26 September 2005, based in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. MADE promotes Arts as a source of personal fulfilment and carves a potential career path for its students as professional dancers, theatre practitioners, choreographers and musicians. The founder was driven by the lack of skills, slow growth and recognition of the South African Arts Industry. Mzansi Arts Development Ensemble’s purpose is to prepare an artist with strong personal interests in the arts to successfully pursue entry into an institute of higher learning and / or career in the performing and fine arts by channelling their unique skills and talents through an intense, integrated academic, training and development programme.
