How to do the diski dance

FIVE moves of the Diski Dance

Article from

The diski dance is the official dance of the 2010 World Cup — and everybody’s doing it! From Major League Soccer fans in the United States to football-mad Japanese supporters — diski is the new Macarena!

You’ve probably seen the adverts on television, but the way to get a true sense of the diski is to watch it done by professionals. Watch the video below, and then we’ll break down the moves for you!

The dance is broken up into five “main” dance moves: Trepa, The Juggle, Header, The Bridge and my personal favourite — Table Mountain! The beauty of diski, which is inspired by the townships, is that you can mix and match, and add things as you go along!

To watch individual moves and learn how to diski like the pros, you can visit learntodiski. com or this website. The videos are great and show you just how easy it is to learn!


To get the… er… ball rolling, you bring in your knees a la ‘The Time Warp’ before kicking out, starting with your right foot. You can do this four times or forty — the idea is to have fun!

The Juggle

The idea of ‘The Juggle’ is pretty much “step over” the ball in order to confuse your opponents. So using your right leg but keeping your weight on your left, you essentially “skip” over your imaginary ball. Once you’ve done that three times (or thirty, you get the idea, right?) you kick the ball off into the distance — but make sure you watch it to see who it goes to!


A fundamental soccer move, it’s all about using your head. Keep your eye on the ball, stick out your chest and step forward to head the ball. It’s as easy as that!

Table Mountain

All you’re doing is hunching over, making your back flat. Then you take it back like a member of Destiny’s Child, still hunched over, but lifting your arms as if you’re doing freestyle in reverse. Starting from your left. Give us four of those, then you’re ready for The Bridge!

The Bridge

You start this move hunched over (from Table Mountain) before lifting up to “release” the ball. Imagine it coming down over your shoulders before catching and holding it with your right foot. See, it’s all those awesome moves you wanted to do as a kid but couldn’t! Then kick it forward twice, or alternatively you can boot it into the goal before cracking open a celebratory drink or blowing on your vuvuzela.

Diski Dance Team Building Event

Team Building Activities > Diski Dance

South Africa's own diski dance is set to get the world jiving to an African rhythm when the football World Cup arrives on the continent for the first time. The 2010 Diski Dance is taking South Africa by storm. With its unique rhythms and funky style, township football gave rise to the Diski Dance with Diski being the township lingo for soccer. Diski Dance incorporates football moves in a uniquely African way with easy to learn steps such as the header, Table Mountain, Juggle / Teka, The Bridge / Brija and Trepa. Start learning the soccer-based moves of South Africa's diski dance and you'll start feeling the rhythm of African football - and the energy and passion that's in store for the world at the 2010 World Cup.

Diski Dance Options
We offer a variety of Diski Dance packages and we will work with you to find a Diski package that suits your budget and preferences. The Diski Dance may be taught to a whole group of people at once or to smaller groups which can compete against each other once the moves have been perfected. The Diski Dance experience can also be taken out to the community.

More About Diski Dance
The Diski Dance is based on what Wendy Ramokgadi, the choreographer of the Diski Dance, calls 'our own township football style'.

Wendy Ramokgadi on the Diski Dance:

“The whole idea was that we needed to come up with something that is truly South African. Our country's football is rhythmic and so all the moves that we use in the dance are those same moves that are used on the South African football pitch, moves you can only find in our country,”

“The Diski Dance is one of the things I am most proud of, I really am excited about it. When these people come to our country, let them come and feel the rhythm of Africa. We must just work, wear, eat, sleep the Diski Dance,”

For Sugen Pillay of South African Tourism, the Diski Dance is about preparing to host the world next year:

“The concept of the Diski Dance is to show our welcoming spirit as a nation,” said Pillay. They intend to mobilise the nation through the dance, from corporate organisations and schools, to government and the general public,”

Some of the Diski Dance Moves
The header - In this move you pretend as if you are bouncing a ball on your head.The imaginary ball lands precisely where your head is with some added sexy hip-swinging movement to spice up this Diski Dance move.
Table Mountain - In this Diski Dance move one bends over to balance the imaginary ball on the back of one's neck while walking backwards.
Juggle / Teka - This Diski Dance move involves the action of passing an imaginary football from your left foot to your right foot and back again.
The Bridge / Brija - Here you are passing the non-existant ball from your left foot, over your right, and catching it again the other side.
Trepa - In this Diski Dance move you lift the imaginary ball from the back of your neck, over your head and back onto your feet.

6 years. My mother took me to a ballroom dance class at the Pioneer House. There was beautiful slow music playing and one couple was dancing before the competition. She had such a beautiful dress with feathers underneath! Mom warned that in order to go to the dance, you have to work a lot and hard. I will walk...
13 years old. We took second place in the regional competition. I love slow foxtrot. I work out 5 days a week. My partner is probably making plans for me outside the parquet, but we will soon leave for Israel...
16 years old. The first trip to the competition in Europe. We have an international rating in the second hundred! I love samba. I teach kids and dream of opening my own studio. We do not part with a partner - after 7 workouts a week, whoever has the strength does not even have an additional haver ...
23 years old. All partners somehow did not return from the army. I go to a partner from Haifa as far as Bat Yam. Maybe already rent an apartment with him in Bat Yam? My dance is rumba, that's what everyone says. nine0016 27 years old. I am graduating in architecture at the Technion. In order to become the most popular dance party, just put on a skirt. When they put on cha-cha, I leave the next partner and dance by myself. My husband will definitely be able to dance!
30 years old. A girl was born. It's good that there is ballroom music - arrangements for kids. The husband could not even dance the Viennese waltz at the wedding.
36 years old. After work, I took my daughter to the ballroom dancing section in matnas. A weak couple in competition clothes tried to waltz. My daughter flatly refused, saying that it takes too much and hard work. nine0016

24 discs with music for ballroom dancing. All discs are branded and licensed. Everything is completely free of charge in Haifa or in Yokneam. We don't postpone anything. Write privately.

Alisa - Dance - album, facts, songs, lyrics, listen The basis for it was the lyrical songs of Konstantin Kinchev, most of which were written in the 80s. Published on tape cassettes and CDs.

Speaking about this disc, Konstantin Kinchev characterizes it as "a respite between fights". The album was released in a pause between the conceptual works "Solstice" and "Now Later Than You Think". The epigraph to "Dance" was a line from Viktor Tsoi's song "We want to dance" (included in the album "Night"): "We will do what we want, but now we want to dance." nine0011

For the first time in 1998, Peter Samoilov announced plans to release a second album, composed of old songs. Prior to this, the Alisa group had already released Jazz, which included lyrical songs by Konstantin Kinchev, written by him in the pre-Alisian period. At the same time, some songs from the album discussed in this article were performed at electric concerts.

A demo-recording of the album by the group "Alisa" was made in the summer of 2000. After that, the musicians recorded the final version of the disc on their own and mixed it themselves at their own digital studio "Krasnye Gory". The album "Solstice" was recorded in the same way. The mastering of the record was entrusted to sound engineer Andrei Subbotin, who worked at the Saturday Mastering Studio. nine0011

The album was released in November 2001. The competition announced by the team for the release of the disc was won by the Soyuz studio. She also designed the cover design, placing hidden advertising of her store on it. It is worth noting that the release of a full-fledged disc was preceded by the appearance of a pirated version of the album with shortened versions of the songs. It was distributed under the title "Like You and Like Me".

Versions of the album release

In 2001, "Dance" was released in two versions - a collection (gift) and a simplified one. The first contained a fold-out booklet with photos of the musicians and lyrics. The plastic box of the disc was packed in a cardboard slip-case, on which Konstantin Kinchev's autograph, left with a black marker, flaunted. Later, a reprint of the edition with a scanned image of the autograph appeared. nine0011

In 2009, the disc was re-released by Real records as part of a collector's box. The booklet design of this edition differs from the original. It published only the lyrics and one photo of the musicians.

In 2014, the album of the group "Alisa" "Dance" is released by the company "Mystery of Sound". The disc of this label was released in digipak format with a multi-page booklet. The cover design is canonical.

Alice - Dance - track list

Some of the songs included in this album were present on the demo version of "Jazz", however, were not included in it as they did not fit into the concept. Many of these compositions were performed by Konstantin Kinchev at acoustic apartment concerts in the 80s. The song "Way towards the forest" in a different arrangement is included in the album "Nervous Night". Only two works from the track list at that time were new - "Spindle" and "Traveling Circus", the last musicians among themselves called "a song about fishing". nine0011

  1. Guest
  2. Spindle
  3. Horizon
  4. Signs (Autumn)
  5. dance
  6. Every night
  7. Monday
  8. Traveling Circus
  9. Good morning
  10. Outsider
  11. Where is your ticket?
  12. Path towards the forest

Video clips were shot for the songs "Spindle" and "Way towards the forest". The latter filmed the children of the musicians of "Alisa", including the son and daughter of Konstantin Kinchev. nine0011

Members of the recording of the album

Keyboardist Dmitry "Oslik" Parfyonov, who by that time had become a member of the band, took part in the recording of "Dance". Alexander Ponomarev, who worked in Alisa in 1997-98, played the guitar as a session musician in the song "Outsider".
