Pupils shown Sho Sho.

School pupils have been given a masterclass in African dance.

Youngsters at Blue Coat Junior School, in Newton Hall, Durham City, were taught the Sho Sho Loza by Mthoko Ntuli, 31, a Durham Business School student from Durban, South Africa.

The dance mirrors the movement of a train as it winds its way around Cape Town's famous Table Mountain.

Mthoko is studying in Durham on a scholarship from the Ruth First Trust, which enables disadvantaged South Africans to attend the university.

It was set up in memory of an anti-apartheid campaigner, who was killed by a parcel bomb in 1982.

He agreed to pass on his skills after meeting dance teacher, Susan Pickersgill, at an African banquet earlier this year.
