Watch: School teachers surprise students with smash-hit “Samsara” dance on Sports Day


The teachers of Laerskool Danie Malan in Pretoria gave their pupils a surprise performance of the “Samsara” and the kids loved it so much, they joined in.


We have been caught unawares, when sent this video we had no clue what the “Samsara” was. Google has helped a little and this is what we have learned.

Basically, its a dance to a song which involves clapping and then pulling a move similar to that of Usain Bolt. A few have labeled it as the “Kempton Clap” on YouTube as well.

There are many videos of South Africans doing it online so clearly we dropped the ball somewhere. All that aside, the teachers from Laerskool Danie Malan in Pretoria surpised their pupils with the dance on their sports day back in 2017.

According to Jacaranda the song is a Euro-house number named “Samsara” by Tungevaag & Rabaan. The original song was launched in 2015 but seems to have become more popular in 2017. The music video showcases a gorilla dancing and it is nothing like the dance in the video by Laerskool Danie Malan. This leads us to believe that the dance was thought up by someone local and has spread like wildfire through the youth of South Africa.

People have been loving the teachers dance and commended them for giving the pupils a good show. Now we are hoping they will do a whole new dance for their 2018 sports day.

Watch the video below and let us know if your kids have been doing this dance too?
