A group of talented young dancers recently flew the national flag high by winning medals at an international dance competition dubbed Rumba in The Jungle held in Sun City, South Africa.

The dancers are under a local dance company, Mike n MsTi Dance Company that offers dance classes for both adults and children. The young dancers managed to win medals and trophies. In an interview with Arts & Culture, the company’s co-director and dance coach, Tshepi ‘MsTi Bleq’ Montsho said it was the first time they took part in the competition.

Montsho said they worked very hard preparing for this competition. She said the little dancers trained daily and had grooming camps, which prepared them for the tough competition. “They (the dancers) looked forward to this championship with a lot of excitement and preparations as beginners in the Dance Sport let alone dance. They did very well. Their registration numbers were mixed up in the competition but they did not despair. Their group songs were wrongly submitted due to pressure and they still fought to do what they went there for, win. Their attires arrived late for their first performance and they had to dance in whatever they were wearing but they focused on the dance,” she explained.
