The gumboot dancers pictured here danced their way to victory at the second annual Kramer's Got Talent show, presented by UCT's Faculty of Law in conjunction with the university's Africa Month celebrations on 8 May. Everybody – from the academics to the cleaning staff – pitched in to make the show a feast of singing and dancing. It was about more than letting down hair, though, as a panel discussion about challenges and opportunities for African youth kicked off proceedings. "Hard work, but it was fun!" was how Liesel Collins, PA to the Dean of Law, described the event. Kramer's Got Talent also exemplified the inter-departmental collegiality at UCT, with the Department of Music lending a piano free of charge for use at the show and the School of Dance helping competitors prepare for the moment of truth.
