Our talented dancers then performed a -off between men and women, they traded sequences and fused them together in thunderous rhythms that built to a massive climax.With the Pantsula and Kwaito dance numbers and “The Cat” Mdu on decks, the music hit the spot and the crowd immediately got their groove on.
The show finished with the whole audience joining in on the “Step One”, a popular sequence danced at parties. But for the crowd this was not the end, they did not want it to stop and called out for more. Theeventually pulled it back but we weren’t done, they wanted another number, so Dikeledi sang a final song and eventually to much applause they let us go.
At the end of a long evening it’s good to know that you have been part of a quality show and brought a group to ecstatic synergy and left them far happier than when they arrived.
