The uShaka Marine World Zulu Dance Championship, now in its 14th year will have the dance troupes battle it out to win top spot.

The regional rounds will take place on Saturday, November 10th and 17th and the finals will be a one day event, due to take place at 11am on Saturday, November 24th.

The prize pool is a one year working contract, commencing December 2018 and is valued at R300 000 overall.

“This unique event at uShaka Marine World, offers performers a fantastic opportunity to develop this special dance form and share it with both local and international visitors. Each performance is a memorable cultural experience that is the very heartbeat of the Kingdom of the Zulu. We are always excited to include a number of zulu dance varieties which ultimately provides more troupes the opportunity to perform, says CEO of uShaka Marine World, Dr Stella Khumalo.
