South African children dancing—a glimpse of the unique culture

You might not be familiar with South African culture, and the five videos of South African children and youth dances below may give you a glimpse of their unique culture, tradition, and entertainment.

African dances are mostly participatory. Traditionally, there are no barriers between dancers and spectators. Onlookers can be part of the performance.

In the videos, we see all the young dancers and kids around them look happy and enjoy the dancing very much. Dancers perform with live music—kids around the performers sing and clap, and sometimes play simple instrument like drums, for the dancers.

Watch the videos and enjoy the happy performances!
