A dance studio based in Broadhurst on Monday hosted a dance show for their young dancers at the Limkokwing Hall.

The dance show was themed “Step into Christmas Dance Show 2015” and in attendance was Minister of Education and Skills  Development, Unity Dow. who gave a word of encouragement to the young dancers. Dow said the dance show was enjoyable and heartwarming. “These children have potential and excellence. It goes on to show that arts, like other disciplines, need fulltime teachers,” she said.

Dow said as they reform the education sector in Botswana, they should include arts fulltime. “The arts has to be fulltime so that our children can also become stars,” she said. She thanked La Danse for recognising talent at a young age. “Before 2017, we should include arts in multiple pathways so that we don’t force our students into wrong careers. The world needs dancers as well,” she said.
