Dancers from across Bloemfontein gathered at Mimosa Mall to showcase their talent and compete for a chance to represent the region at the Red Bull Dance Your Style 2023 national final.

Luyanda Mkhonjwa, better known as Louie-V, won and will be heading to the final, taking place on 2 September in Durban.

According to Red Bull, Louie-V won the crowd over with energy and passion.

“I wasn’t expecting to win and I’m going through many emotions right now,” said Louie-V on the day.

“I’m happy with the results as I entered last year but didn’t make the cut, but I made sure I came prepared this year. This win is for the crowd that kept me each round and I’m hoping to do the same at the national final in Durban. I will make sure that I’m doing all the dance moves that are relevant and entertaining,” he added.

Louie-V stands a chance of representing South Africa at the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final in Germany later this year if he wins the national finals.
