The Sibikwa Arts Centre has joined with the Gauteng Dance Manyano to make Dance Xplosion 2017 an even more attractive opportunity for youth dance groups.

Dance Xplosion, the third and last leg of Thunya Lerole, the Sibikwa Dance Season 2017, provides a platform for all interested groups to showcase their work, grow their creativity, see what other dancers are up to and share ideas and opinions on current community dance trends.
