      Since we wear diapers, we may not notice it, but dance and movement flow through our body. We can bounce and move to almost any rhythm or series of sounds we associate with, and pretty soon the dance becomes a serious push to keep going. Keo Motsepe is a prime example of how early dance potential starts, especially with boys.

      Motsepe was born in South Africa and started dancing for fun at the age of five. By the age of seven, Motsepe began to take dancing seriously, which inspired him to start training with Rafik Hussein. Motsepe reflected on the influence Hussein had on the development of his love of dancing.

      “He has been a mentor to me all my life,” Mocepe says. "He made me the dancer that I am today because he took the passion he saw in me and made me see it and believe in it."

      Mocepe's professional career began when he was 11 years old when he entered the dance scene. Representing his country, Mocepe competed in Latino and Valroom dance styles. Participation in these various competitions was just the beginning for Mocepe. In 2014, Motsepe joined ABC's Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) to cast like a pro. Being in this new realm of competitive dance, while exciting, has given him great opportunities as well as great challenges.

      “I think one of the biggest challenges I have faced and continue to face is going beyond what I think and can achieve,” Motsepe shares.

      Because of the long rehearsals and the seemingly short amount of time to learn the choreography for each show, Motsepe says: DWTS, where you put on a new piece every week, you need to find new things that inspire you to create something something that will be better than the week before.”

      “It's important to stay fresh and constantly push through the limits you've set for yourself,” says Motsepe.

      Now in his fourth season of DWTS, Motsepe has become a crowd favorite and partnered with Jody Sweetin of Full House and Fuller House. Mocepe spoke about his initial reaction when he learned that he would be Sweetin's partner.

      “When I found out that she was my partner, I was very grateful,” says Motsepe. “That first rehearsal was memorable for me because I knew I had a partner who would give 110 percent to this process.”

      Motsepe went on to describe his experience with Sweetin as his partner on DWTS . He described his experience with Jody as is truly incredible.
