Waterstone College Independent School is preparing its students for the upcoming matric dance by giving them dance lessons.


Johannesburg, South Africa (12 February 2020) – The matric dance is an important part of school, it is a treat for spending so many years working hard on your education. While grade 12 students are encouraged to study hard for finals, the final year is also filled with moments of celebration.

Matric is just about the very best year of your schooling career. You have reached the very top, you are older, you are most likely excited to get into clubs legally, vote for the first time and you will try to get your license. It can also be stressful, it is your last chance to do your very best, get that university acceptance and qualify for that bursary.

It is also the last time you have to spend with all your friends, the last moments where you don’t need to grow up and be responsible. Being in matric is exciting!

The Waterstone College Independent School recently gave their grade 12 students dance lessons. The lessons are for their upcoming matric dance. It is so nice to see a school put some effort into the celebrations and teach a skill that has mostly died out.

Speaking from personal experience, not many people can dance properly these days. How many of you can dance and what is your favourite? If you can’t dance, what was your favourite part of matric?

Take a look at their dance lesson below. We think everyone is going to love it when they are in their flowing dresses and all tuxedoed up!
