THE new Kokstad dance club, Larata Dance Club, is celebrating after members brought home a trophy, medals and certificates from the 2017 World Trial Championship competition in Durban recently.

It is the first time the club competed in a provincial competition. The club is made up of children aged between eight and 13 from around Kokstad.

The dancers attend dance lessons after school at a community hall and are trained by two coaches.

The club’s manager, Libontso Lepita established the dance club to encourage children to become dancers. The club enjoys support from the community of Kokstad as well as DanceSport South Africa.

“Seven couples participated in the ballroom category one level and the Latin dance level one category and didn’t disappoint. I am proud of this achievement because this will encourage other children to join the club. Dancing helps to improve the condition of heart and lungs, increases muscular strength and makes bones strong,” said Lepita.

The competition was supported by World DanceSport Federation and Department of Sport and Recreation. Lepita appealed to people of Kokstad to sponsor the club with a vehicle to transport dancers to competitions. For more information, contact Lepita on 076 510 0809.
