It is safe to say that the Sokkie dance does not fall into the Ballroom Dance Styles nor the Latin American Dance Styles. No, this dance is uniquely South African!

Also known as in Afrikaans as  “Langarm” (meaning long arm) referencing the extended arms and clasped hands, this dance is just a bit of fun that’s included in our social dance class teaching curriculum. 

Because what’s life without a little fun!

Deon and Shaan provide a delightful demonstration of the personality of this dance.

We hope that this list of songs inspires your home practice.
