The much celebrated dance competition in the world is about to hit North West once again. Scores of dancers around the world are expected to flood to Sun City next month. Local communities around the province are expected to score big during the three day event famously known as Rumba in the Jungle. Organisers assured the media in Sandton this afternoon that North West communities will benefit more. Chief Executive Officer of South African Dance Foundation and Rumba in the Jungle Program Manager, Marion Baxter said local dancers will have an opportunity to rub shoulders with top dancers from around the world. Baxter said local businesses will also benefit from the competition as accomodation around Sun City would be fully booked.
“We are super proud to announce that Rumba in the Jungle 2018 is taking place on 19-21 October 2018 at the iconic Sun City.
“After engagement with ALL our stakeholders including the World Dance Council, we decided to reschedule from our initial planned date to October 2018 due to circumstances beyond our control. We trust this will afford the dance community the opportunity to participate in this spectacular competition, which is Open to the World.
ALL Associations; ALL Dancers, ALL genres are welcome to participate in the true spirit of Freedom to Dance. We look forward to sharing this memorable event with local communities, said Baxter.
