Patliso Motlhontlhong, a 17-year-old girl from Mahikeng took the hip-hop dance competition by storm today. Her dance moves together with her partner won them the best Rumba in the Jungle Youth Championship Hip-hop duet in Sun City. “I’m very happy to win on my first competition. We practiced a lot with my partner. We are competing again on Sunday and we are going to win again,” said Motlhontlhong.
Rumba in the Jungle is the biggest dance festival ever held in Africa, staged in Sun City Resort in the Bokone Bophirima Province. During its prime time era of between 1994 and 1996, dance was also classified as the third most popular leisure and life-style activity after Soccer and Rugby. ALSO, in the same era, the province of Bokone Bophirima was rated fourth (4th), from the nine provinces (9), as the preferred tourists’ destination. Befitting this stature, it is only appropriate that the slogan for Rumba in the Jungle is ‘OPEN TO THE WORLD’
