Held at the Osu Presby Hall in Accra, Ghana on Saturday, September 2, it saw dancers from different clubs in the country participating. It also hosted up to par dancers from Togo and Benin.
The special guest of honour was former First Lady of the Republic of Ghana Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings.
In her speech, the former First Lady who took to the dance floor to exhibit her prowess in the art also mentioned that she was excited about the dance and added that she was taught the dance at an early stage of her life.
She also noted that she will establish a dance school because she likes the etiquette of dancing and believes people should be properly taught how to dance in order to aid and abet our social co-existence.
