Cartoon Network Africa is getting into the groove with its new animated series CN Dance Challenge, which premieres October 2.
Aimed at seven to 12s, the show stars a pair of animated hosts who teach kids different African-inspired dance routines. Episodes will also feature a dance battle segment in which one of the hosts takes on a real kid who has mastered the dance from the previous week. Cartoon Network has partnered with Nigerian director Benjamin Sokomba Dazhi to animate the characters.
CN Dance Challenge will air on Cartoon Network Africa’s linear channel and on Cartoon Network Africa’s website. The eight eps are one to two minutes long.
The African kidsnet is no stranger to dance shows—in 2016, it ordered live-actioner Pop Up Party, which follows along with young African dancers who bust a move in a variety of different places.
