The Diski Dance is fun, fun, fun!
It is very easy to do and it makes you feel good. It makes you want to go out there, cheer for your team, paint your face in your national colours, wave your supporter's flag, see goals being scored and celebrate with thousands.
The Diski Dance takes its inspiration from African soccer and is a combination of football moves used by African players.
The style of their game is unique, flamboyant and a pleasure to watch.
The dance comprises five major steps derived from soccer moves, including a juggle, a header, Table Mountain (flattening the back to keep the ball behind the head), Trepa (flicking the ball from behind the neck, over the head and onto the foot) and the Bridge (passing the ball over the left foot with the right foot and back again.
Also included in the Diski Dance are styles like shibobo, heeler, tsamaya, show me your number and others.
It is essentially meant to showcase the rhythm that characterises our football on the continent as a whole.
The 2010 Diski Dance was created as a dance routine to welcome visitors to the warm and colourful South African culture and to demonstrate to visitors the rhythm that represents our local football.
South Africa's own Diski Dance is set to get the world jiving to an African rhythm when the football World Cup arrives on the continent for the first time.
The Diski Dance is the number 1 dance for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, so learn to boogie to celebrate with all the masses of supporters.
All the enthusiatic soccer loving supporters must learn this dance!
"The Diski Dance is one of the things I am most proud of, I really am excited about it," says Wendy Ramokgadi, the choreographer of the Diski Dance. The dance is based on, what Wendy calls "our own township football style".
