DON'T MISS THIS: Battle of the Giants All Styles Dance Festival

Staff Reporter

South Africa's premier dance event, the 25th Battle of the Giants All Styles Dance Festival returns to Sun City.

The event presents a kaleidoscope of dance forms attracting amateur, championship and professional dance entrants from around the country.

Dancers will compete in freestyle, slowdance, ballroom and latin, hip-hop, showdance, street dance show, disco dance, jazz, breakdance and electric boogie. The stage branch has opened a para category for disabled competitors as well.

The audience can expect to see a visual feast of colourful, glamorous costumes, dramatic make-up and the dynamism, passion and energy of dance, coupled with expert choreography and dancing.

Judging this year's contest are Kirsten Dan Jensen from Denmark, who serves on the Presidium of the International Dance Organisation, and South Africa's David Jones, Rudi Smit, Diana Moore, Pacou Mutombo and Craig Bullock to name a few.

The festival is also a springboard for talented entrants who go on to achieve even greater recognition. The current world freestyle and slowdance Champion Kalon Badenhorst is one such example.
