In 1996 DanceSport was rated the third most popular leisure activity in South Africa, after soccer and rugby. 'Rumba in the Jungle' was the premier international dance event bringing dance couples from around the world to Sun City to compete for the prestigious title. But in 1999, due to internal factions, the dance festival disappeared from the international dance calendar and with it, its standing as a popular sport of choice in South Africa. Before it disappeared, the prestigious competition launched the careers of Michael Wentink and Tebogo Kgobokoe, two world-renowned dance champions from South Africa who are now grooming a new generation of dancesport enthusiasts. As 'Rumba in the Jungle' makes its resurgence nearly two decades later, we follow Michael and Tebogo's journeys over the five-day event and look back on moments in the past to discover what gave them focus, how they fought their personal demons, and what made them the legendary champions that they are today.
