Youngsters learn South African dances

A South African dance troupe held dancing and singing workshops at Kingshill School in Nailsea

SOUTH African singing and dancing rang out from a Nailsea school after a visit from the Zakhele Dance Troupe.

The troupe ran a singing and dancing extravaganza at Kingshill Primary School and the youngsters learnt how to do a welly dance, watched a story about a warthog told through dance and learnt some new songs.

Sophie Collins, aged 11, said: “It was really great meeting people from a different country and learning new things. The best part was learning the welly dance - you slap your legs and clap your hands and the wellies make a slapping noise.”
