Shakira Rocks the Waka Waka Dance with Kids
Shakira rocked the Waka Waka — the official dance of the World Cup — with the help of South African schoolkids.
The Latin pop star visited the Isu-lihle School in the Soweto section of Johannesburg Wednesday, where she taught students the dance, according to The Associated Press.
While there, Shakira, 33 — who made the trip on behalf of the 1Goal initiative, which promotes education around the world — also watched performances by the students, who showed her some Zulu dance moves.
The singer is slated to perform the World Cup theme song, "Waka Waka (This is Africa)" at the World Cup Kickoff Celebration Concert Thursday, alongside Juanes, Alicia Keys and the Black Eyed Peas.
