Dance, our OXYGEN In South Africa, the most popular form of art of the youth is Dance. It is our oxygen, there is never anything that includes the youth without dance. We are even taught general things through it. As the youth we express ourselves in many ways, so because of that we do different types of dances. Here are some of them Gumboot- originated in the mines of South Africa and has been done for many years. When dancing you should wear rubber boots and overalls. Pantsula-when this dance originated it was done by boys and as time went by girls were then allowed to do it. The thing is many girls don’t enjoy it, so in a group of 20 you will only find 2-3 girls. You need a lot of energy and flexibility to be able to do it. “Mapantsula”(people who do the dance)wear 3 quarter Dickis pants, baggy T- Shirts tucked in, Converse sneakers and Alaska hats called “Spotty”. Sbhujwa- It needs a lot of energy. You cannot do this dance with any type of music, you either use Kwaito or House music. People who do this dance are called “ Mabujwa” and they wear skinny pants and tight tops. Indlamu- It is a Zulu traditional dance and mostly done in Kwa-Zulu Natal, one of the provinces in South Africa. One of the things that they is “Ibheshu”, made out of animal skin.
