About the Show

Jiva! is a South African television drama series about a talented street dancer from Umlazi, Durban, who must confront her fears and deal with family objections to pursue her dancing dreams.

The series follows the life of talented street dancer Ntombi, who - while juggling the demands of a dead end job, family responsibility and a rocky love life - realises that her dance moves could be her ticket out of her working class neighbourhood in Durban.

But first, she must overcome her fears, beat her rivals and sort out the chaos that is her family.

On her journey to get there she forms a dance group called the Trollies, made up of four very different but equally talented women: Vuyiswa (played by Candice Modiselle, Zinhle (Sne Mbatha), Lady E (Stella Dlangalala) and Nolwazi (Zazi Kunene).

Choreographed by Bontle Modiselle and Tom London, the show features a wide range of dance styles, all coming together to create a colourful ode to South African dance culture.

The series is a celebration of South African fashion, dance and urban life, featuring fashion creations from MaXhosa,  Hamethop, Imprint, Siko Republik and Africa Your Time is Now.

The series stars Noxolo Dlamini, Candice Modiselle, Zazi Kunene, Stella Dlangalala and Sne Mbatha, with Sibulele Gcilitshana, Ntuthuzelo Grootboom, Given Stuurman, Zamani Mbatha, Tony Kgoroge, Kagiso Modupe and Anga Makubalo.

Jiva! is produced by Blue Ice Africa and The Ntintili Factory with assistance from the Department of Trade and Industry. Other producers are Adam Friedlander and Tebogo Maila.

The series was created by Busisiwe Ntintili, who also directs, writes, produces and is showrunner for the series. Other directors include Scottnes L Smith and Mandla Dube.

The story was developed by Busisiwe Ntintili, Bakang Sebatjane, Linda Bere and Justine Loots.

The lead choreographers are Tom London and Bontle Modiselle; other choreographers include Sne Mbatha, Palesa Sello, Monde Mgcina, Tlhogi Molefi, Kananelo Ngaleka and Nthuthuzelo Grootboom.

Music is by Zethu Mashika.
