Lulu voted SA’s best

2010-10-19 00:00

JOHANNESBURG dancer Lulu Mlangeni is South Africa’s best dancer — and that’s official.

The talented contemporary and ballet dancer beat off stiff competition from Pretoria’s Latin American specialist Darren Hammond, hip-hop and freestyle dancer Carl Winleigh Davids of Johannesburg and ballet dancer Shelley Nicole Christians of Cape Town, to win the coveted title, as well as R250 000, in Saturday night’s finale of So You Think You Can Dance on SABC1.

The show proved to be an emotional rollercoaster for the contestants, who each had to perform two dances with different partners and then solo routines.

During the show, the top 16 dancers of this season’s show, including Maritzburg’s Bonwa Mbontsi, performed one last time, and some of contestants recreated routines that the judges enjoyed and wanted to see again.
