May shows off dance moves on Africa trip

By Richard Wheeler

Theresa May turned her hand to dance-floor diplomacy on the opening day of her Africa trade trip.

The Prime Minister moved from side to side and bobbed up and down as she was greeted at a school by a group of pupils dancing.

Mrs May smiled and laughed throughout and later joined in with a second dance during her visit to the ID Mkize School in Cape Town.

At a school assembly, she told pupils: "Can I thank all those young people who were involved in the performances outside."

The PM used her visit to the school to announce that the Chevening Scholarship would be opened up to 100 more of "Africa's brightest young people".

She said: "I'd like to think that some of you might think of coming to one of our great universities.

"We've got a programme, it's called the Chevening Scholarship, which helps people to do that."
