Lesotho school to dance in Germany

MASERU — A group of young dancers from Likuena High School in Mohale’s Hoek is set to tour Germany next month.

The students will perform traditional dances and songs as part of events to mark the city of Gummersbach’s 900 years of existence.

The city of 54 000 people is in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, 50km east of Cologne.

Festivities to mark City Gummersbach’s jubilee will run from June 7 to 15.

Yvette Wrigley, a commercial attaché at the Kingdom of Lesotho’s embassy in Germany, announced the Likuena High School group’s participation in the celebrations.

“This year during June we have a group of young people from the Mohale’s Hoek area who attend Likuena High School coming to perform traditional dance and song at a combined event at the City Gummersbach 900-year jubilee in south-western Germany and in Berlin,” Wrigley said in an e-mailed notice.

The Mohale’s Hoek school was chosen by the Morija Arts and Cultural Festival’s organising committee, the link with the Germans.

“A group of 13 students plus two teachers are scheduled to leave the country on June 7 to perform traditional dances in Germany,” said Pusetso Nyabela, programme coordinator of the Morija Arts and Cultural Festival.

“They are basically going to perform our traditional dances at the city of Gummersbach’s 900th anniversary.”

He said the trip will enable the students to learn more about the German culture and way of doing things.

“I believe they will learn from their trip on how things are done in other countries,” Nyabela said.
