RSA Footballers Dance

All DanceSport associations in Southern Africa - Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe - unite in the first ever festival from 25 to 27 March in Gaborone Botswana.

A facebook event page for the DanceSport festival shows that anticipations are high across the region.

"This is Swaziland's PRO ... On behalf of team Swazi, we are ready and looking forward to a lot of fun and dance over there," writes Sammy Msibi, the public relations officer of the Swaziland DanceSport Association.

Sammy also ensured that the local press took up on the event and published articles on the Swazi contingent traveling to Gaborone. With ambitions as high as their anticipation! The Swazi Observer reports below. Having as active a PRO as Sammy Msibi, it shouldn't surprise that DanceSport outperforms football in growth and popularity among young people in Southern Africa.
