SHA-LOUI Dance Club was very well supported at their recent end of year show which was a feast of classic and modern dancing.

Decorated tables and candlelight set the mood in Port Alfred’s Girl Guide Hall and ticket holders were invited to bring picnic baskets for the show. A few dressed up as pirates, fairies and cowboys to fit in with the Disney theme.
Some well-chosen hip-hop songs formed the background of the freestyle dancing with the girls in particular proving they had the moves. This was followed by a well-executed salsa by the younger members of the club.
Andre Smuts treated the audience to a rendition of Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline before the older dance club members did a graceful foxtrot, the girls looking beautiful in flowing evening wear and the boys resplendent in their three piece suits.
Curves co-owner Candice Norden showed off the latest hip-hop Zumba moves before Kyle Badenhorst and Tarryn du Randt moved the audience with their contemporary movement piece which included impressive lifts.
After the break, the younger dancers did the jive followed by Twan Fella who circled and twisted her hips in her much enjoyed tribal fusion belly-dancing piece. Looking punk in dishevelled school clothes, the younger class returned for some creative dancing.
The audience loved the expertly carried-out moves by the older members who tangoed across the floor.
Smuts performed the Afrikaans song Jessica before the big finale with its surprise ending.
After dancing to The Lion King’s I Just Can’t Wait to be King, the dancers suddenly broke into the overnight hit Gangham Style, dance moves included, and invited people to join them on the floor. This ended the evening in high spirits and all in all promises good things for next year.
