“I dance as if I have a gun to my head.” Across South African cities and townships, young people use dance as a way of dealing with, transforming, and transcending the harshness of ghetto life. The African Cypher follows several street dance crews as they prepare for a nationwide dance competition, providing an overview of the different styles but focusing on one magnetic duo, the Movers & Shakers, who combine dazzling moves with social consciousness as they mentor the next generation to help break the cycle of crime and poverty.
