DANCE AFRICA SEASON 2 IS COMING! (article first published : 2008-04-19)

Channel O’s Season 1 of Dance Africa on M-Net proved a huge success – and now the second Dance Africa is about to step up to the plate with another scintillating series of shows designed to unearth the best freestyle dance talent on the continent!

The popular Channel O show kicks into gear on April 20 at 19h00 and the first stop is Lagos, Nigeria, where the talent flowed fast and thick as would-be professional dancers showed off their moves for the judges. In the end only three dancers could be chosen from all the hopefuls – a trio of talented Nigerians who are now in the running for the top prize.

Other cities - hoping that their dancers have what it takes to keep the competition on their toes - are Dar-es-Salaam (Tanzania), Accra (Ghana), Windhoek (Namibia), Nairobi (Kenya) and Johannesburg (South Africa). The dance floor battle in each of these cities will be showcased in upcoming episodes of Dance Africa.

The winner of Channel O’s Dance Africa search will receive $10 000.00 in cash and training from the Johannesburg-based Dance Umbrella. Whoever triumphs will also have the chance to perform at the 2008 Spirit of Africa Music Video Awards, giving them a platform to showcase their abilities before the who’s who of the African entertainment industry.

Viewers at home are also part of the action – in a regular segment (“You Own The Floor”) they will be shown some tasty moves by the show’s in-house choreographer and regular appearances by some of the continent’s top music acts will add to the show’s appeal.

Dance Africa is presented by Lungsta - who is determined in leading the quest to find the individual with just the right moves to standout as Africa’s best new freestyle dancer – and he is assisted by choreographer Khabonina Qubeka.
