Do the Diski Dance




Start learning the soccer-based moves of South Africa's diski dance and you'll start feeling the rhythm of African football - and the energy and passion that's in store for the world at the 2010 World Cup.

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.

The dance, that takes its inspiration from Diski Football (as unique and flamboyant a football style as vuvuzelas are trumpeting and triumphant), is started by a little boy, spreads to other settings and spills onto the streets of Johannesburg. It comprise a series of soccer moves.

The Diski Dance is fun!! It's very easy to do. It makes you feel good. It makes you want to go out there; cheer for your team; paint your face in your national colours; wave your supporter's flag; see goals being scored and celebrate with thousands and thousands of others.

It's inherently African, rhythmic, celebratory, vital, joyful.

The football-loving world will be gripped by the rhythmic, celebratory diski dance that has already become the definitive boogie of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Diski is the best thing that has ever happened to South Africa. I think Bafana should do it before they play, you know like a the Kiwi's haka. The crowds would go wild and the opposition will fear.

Fantastic African invention!
