#DWTSSA embraces next celebs on dance floor

How do you jive, waltz, cha-cha, tango, mercy or quickstep your way into the hearts of M-Net viewers? And at the same time, impress a panel of esteemed judges who boast impressive CVs in the international world of dance?


The pressure is on for the second group of celebrities, and their professional dancing partners in M-Net’s dazzling new Sunday night reality show Dancing With The Stars SA.

This Sunday the remaining group of six celebrities must manage to surpass last week’s contenders on the leaderboard? Or will the nerves kick in after witnessing the judges’ Debbie Turner, Bryan Watson, Tebogo Kgobokoe and Jason Gilkison‘s high standards?

Actress Zola Nombona discovered how difficult it is to receive a high rating from the judges – especially from the show’s technique-obsessed Tebogo Kgobokoe, whose scores varied between 3 to 5 out of 10.
