Welcome to pantsula dance
During the 1960's the youth of South Africa's townships who had become exposed to such modern devices as transistor radios quickly became aware of international pop music trends. Ghetto blasters, (as they became known) became prized possessions that loudly amplified such dance routines as the Twist, the Limbo, the Bird and Rock and Roll! This new music was indeed food for hungry imaginations - a music that commanded attention and respect...that evoked the human body to writhe, wriggle and jerk every limb into a rhythm never before seen!
Pantsula dancing, in many ways akin to modern day Hip Hop remains extremely popular amongst the youngsters of South Africa's, not only within the townships but also in towns, cities and similar built up areas where many of the African folk have settled in post Apartheid SA. Pantsula for life.
