CULTURAL DANCE

After the Eregi School comedy came a creative cultural dance performed in Kikuyu by Muthuaini Girls Secondary School from Nyeri County.

The dance was choreographed by Dr Jane Mugo, who is also the principal of the school.

The dance, just like the Eregi comedy, addressed the human behaviour of sibling rivalry where one family feels unhappy upon seeing a relative succeed.

The dance captivated the audience due to its attractive use of different music instruments and accompaniments.

It took issue with the culture of resorting to court litigation which is common in the society instead people amicably resolving their disputes.

The dance script proposed that relatives should always resolve their disputes away from the courts.
