DanceSport Namibia 28/07/2014

DanceSport in Southern Africa Dancing was recognised a sport code by the International Olympic Committee in 1997 but Namibia despite the bug that seems to be biting many a Namibian socialites and lifestyles followers, has sadly not introduced, nor popularized this code in the country. In neighbouring  South Africa, however, this gracious dancing has,  since this announcement, sky-rocketed into the largest single participatory Sport Code of that country.

But Namibia’s Deputy Minister of Youth, National Service, Sport and Culture, Juliet Kavetuna, says, admirably, people from all levels and backgrounds of the South African population are currently eagerly participating in this sport in overwhelming numbers,  to compete for awards at the Olympics.

“As such, this Sport Code has become a major uniting factor among the people of South Africa,  who were, like in Namibia, kept in the past, in different worlds, let alone having physical contact,   as is inevitable in this Code.” She is of the opinion that Namibia, has a perfect example of the feasibility and popularity of this particular sport, right on its doorstep.  “From the South African example it is clear that large numbers of people, including young boys and girls from formerly disadvantaged communities, are passionately grasping the opportunity to partake in this international Sport Code,  and are competing at the Olympics for Gold, Silver or Bronze,” she adds.
