Forget the macarena. Forget the moon walk. South Africa’s own Diski Dance is set to get the world jiving to an African rhythm when the football World Cup arrives on the continent for the first time.
Here’s How to do the Diski Dance
The Diski Dance, comprising a series of choreographed soccer moves, features in a television advert from South African Tourism, aimed at generating excitement at home and abroad ahead of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.
The advert will air on global channels including CNN, BBC, Eurosport and Skysport leading up to the World Cup kickoff on 11 June 2010, giving soccer fans a chance to learn the moves and “feel the rhythm of African football”.
