Welcome to our DSSL website
School sports in South Africa offers a wonderful and organised framework in which our young people can grow character, resilience, grit and have fun. Our young people are also able to connect with many of their peers, thereby building bridges that otherwise would not exist, but are vitally important as we strive to embed and realise our
African Dream as a united country.
DanceSport School League celebrates every child. The dream behind its inception was exactly that – everyone can dance, and every South African child deserves a platform
to express themselves! In our case, all you need is a pair of sneakers. Dance is a passion for many, so we created a platform for participation whereby there is no need for costly facilities or infrastructure which excludes many of our young people from opportunity
to participate and thrive.
Our curriculum and fixture formatting level the playing field for all participants in that
the harder they practice their prescribed moves, and spend time on adding their
own flair and creativity within the curriculum (and this can be done anywhere),
the better an athlete they become.
Our code has been financially self-sufficient since our formal, yet humble, launch in 2015, and our executives – both national and regional – commit their time freely to growing this exciting sport amongst our schools.
DanceSport School League was the fervent dream of a few – the dream is
now being realised by many.
We look forward to hearing from your school and undertake to provide you and
your school with the necessary assistance so that DanceSport can realise
your children’s aspirations and character development too.
Yours in education
