His interest in classical ballet came through his youngest brother Siphesilhe November, now dancing with National Ballet of Canada.
Siphesilhe started to take classes at the dance program Dance For All in Ashton. Fiona Montague wanted to teach young black children who were talented enough to do dance training.
"My brother decided to go to her class, of some weird reason," says Mthuthuzeli with a big laugh.
"He came back and started to talk about things, I hadn’t any clue what he was talking about. It was plie, tendu and other ballet term. And I told him: What the hell is a plie?"
"But he asked me nicely to go and watch him do the dance training. I remember I skipped football for a day and went to see my brother doing this ballet thing."
