According to Maitisong administration officer, Boitumelo Selelo, the event attracts youth from different parts of the country that will be inspired by their peers from Mophato Dance Theatre and Battery Dance Company. She added that the event would also be part of a cultural exchange between the two countries through dance.

“Dancing To Connect is an award-winning arts educational programme developed by Battery Dance Company, with a proven track record of giving participants the key to unlock their creativity. Public diplomacy officers, US, international foundations, government and ministries validate its success across Europe, Africa, South America and Asia,” she said.

Selelo added that dancing to Connect had been implemented in 45 countries globally. She said the programme made a debut in Botswana on Monday with a workshop that attracted about 100 youths. He said the workshop would end with a showcase on Saturday.

The event will feature performances by Mophato Dance Theatre, Battery Dance Company and some of the workshop participants. It will start at 7pm and is free of charge.
