Spring in the steps: Dance sport will come to life this weekend

The Independence Open Dance Sport Championships is making a comeback tomorrow at the Botho University after a COVID-19 break, the last dance extravaganza being in 2019.

The Open Dance Championships will be serving up Ballroom, Latin, Salsa, Bachata, Ballet, Sbujwa/Amapiano, Contemporary, and Aerobics team matches. Kesego Lopang, the brains behind the event and a global dance sensation with gold medals in Russia and Greece, and a bronze in Italy, spilt the beans to MmegiSport, dubbing it the most eye-popping event in the Botswana Dance Sport calendar.

“We're expecting a throng of over 250 local movers and shakers and a foot-tapping 150 from foreign shores. Invites have been flung far and wide, reaching the likes of China, India, South Africa, Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland, Seychelles, Switzerland, and Zimbabwe,” she spilt. Lopang teased about the star-studded line-up of international experts, Happy Ramano and Adelaide Hlungwane, current top dogs in Dance Sport South Africa (DSSA). Local darlings, Shawn Mapogo and Motheo Ntshese from the University of Botswana (UB) dance studio are set to grace the championships. These hot-steppers previously made waves as finalists at the Youth Raising Star during the All South Africa Open Championships.
