HISTORICAL NOTE: Jerusalema the song, is a South African song of prayer. In November 2019 Nomcebo Zikode a singer/songwriter together with Master KG, a South African DJ & music producer recorded the track ‘Jerusalema’. She sang in Zulu. In February 2020, the Angolan dance troupe Fenómenos do Semba created the dance in a backyard in Luanda, Angola, South-West Africa. The song & dance quickly became a symbol of hope amidst the fear & isolation brought by the Pandemic of Covid-19. Jerusalema became more than just a dance. It celebrated survivors & united countries in the hope to overcome the Pandemic in the form of international challenges. It now has thousands of repetitive routines. I have choreographed the dance for the first time as a contra line dance. Hope you take the challenge & do your own styling!
