KAMPALA – It will be explosive this Saturday as 14 of the best Ugandan dance crews enter boot camp in a journey to find the finest.
The search for Uganda’s best dance crew started on April 7, 2018 with auditions in Gulu, Mbarara, Mbale and Kampala where viewers and judges picked the 14.
This Saturday, they enter a house at a secret location in Kampala to compete for the top prize as well as embark on a journey to professional dancing.
Producer, Eric Lubwama of Kunta Productions, reveals a number of dance icons have been lined up to mentor the dance crews.
