Finding My Own Rhythm: My Story (Hardback)Motsi Mabuse (author)
From her youth growing up in apartheid-era South Africa to Strictly stardom, Motsi Mabuse charts her rhythm-filled path in this warm, engaging memoir brimming with passion for dance.
'Ever since I was a child I loved to dance. I had it in me - and when you dance the whole day and you've got music, it doesn't feel like work. It's freedom. It's love. It's therapy.'
Before taking Strictly Come Dancing by storm, Motsi Mabuse worked her way up to becoming one of the top professional dancers worldwide and was crowned the Latin dance champion. From the moment she fell in love with the glitterball world as a young child watching a dance tournament, she knew that dancing was her destiny.
However, it wasn't always an easy path. Motsi takes us back to her youth growing up in apartheid-era South Africa, where she experienced exclusion and discrimination. She raised the money herself to compete in international competitions, eventually uprooting her life to be with her dance partner in Germany. Through it all, Motsi never let anything hold her back from fulfilling her dreams, showing the determination, hard work and resilience it took to get to where she is today.
In Finding My Own Rhythm, Motsi leads us in to the rhinestone-studded world of dance, through the ups and downs, romances and heartbreaks, the obstacles and adversity, and the long hours and triumphs that made it all worth it, all while staying true to herself and moving to the beat of her own rhythm.
