In 1996, DanceSport was rated as the third most popular leisure activity in South Africa, after soccer and rugby. ‘Rumba in the Jungle‘ was the premier international dance event bringing dance couples from around the world to Sun City to compete for the prestigious title. But, in 1999, due to internal factions, the dance festival disappeared from the international dance calendar, and with it, its standing as a popular sport in South Africa. Before it disappeared, the prestigious competition launched the careers of Michael Wentink and Tebogo Kgobokoe, two world-renowned dance champions from South Africa who are now grooming a new generation of DanceSport enthusiasts. The film follows Michael and Tebogo’s journey as ‘Rumba in the Jungle’ makes its resurgence nearly two decades later.
