The journey of "African Footprint" began as Richard Loring's dream to empower South African youth, especially talented young black dancers, through theatre. His vision evolved into a determination to create a unique song and dance experience as a platform to showcase emerging talents. This resolve, strengthened by his introduction to fiery words of passion and love of acclaimed poet, Don Mattera, and by exposure to the dramatic fusion of award-winning choreographers, Debbie Rakusin and David Matamela, materialised into the "Explosive Stampede of Song and Dance" that is "African Footprint".

The first public performance of the embryonic "African Footprint" was as part of the Global Broadcast of South Africa's Millennium celebrations from Robben Island, scene of the imprisonment of world icon, Nelson Mandela. Even at this early stage the energy and enthusiasm of the young dancers made an impact that was sufficient to draw interest from around the world.
'African Footprint is described as an explosive stampede of song and dance - and it is exactly that.' '...it is fusion of euro- and afro- centric dance... with fantastic numbers that take us through the South African landscape of gumboot, township jive and hip-hop pansula.'
