Keo Motsepe is done with dancing in the dusty streets of Mabopane because tonight he dances with the stars.

The local born dancer is taking America by storm as a dancer on the US hit TV dance competition, Dancing with the Stars 

According to the Sunday Times on Sunday, Keo, whose real name is Keoikantse Motsepe, will make his debut on the show tonight as the dance partner to Olympic track star, Lolo Jones.

He's "living the dream", he told the paper. "I have so many mixed emotions, every day I wake up and think, is this really happening to me?" he says.

Keo grew up in the streets of Mabopane, just outside of Pretoria, where he learnt to dance in the studio nearby. Now he is part of the international dance group, Burn the Floor and is not only the first South African on the show, but also the show's first black professional dancer.

Way to represent, Keo!

Making us proud!
