A fun video of a teacher dancing with school learners in celebration of the school holidays recently went viral.

The A 27-year-old teacher at Laerskool Vryburg in the North West became a viral hit in South Africa after a clip of him dancing with school learners hit the web.

In fact, over 700 000 people have watched the video on Facebook so far. The video was uploaded about a week ago when the school holidays officially kicked off in SA.

And now, IOL identified the teacher as Ammiel Smith who reportedly dances regularly with his Laerskool Vryburg pupils during practical periods, enabling him to learn new dance tricks.

“The children were so happy that they got their results back and their marks looked good,” Smith later told TimesLive. “I was also happy that we could have a break and rest for three weeks. We also got our salaries that day.

“We usually dance at our school to warm up or at the end of our programmes, to make the children feel special.”

Reactions on social media

“The one inside the bin, they are so happy though. You know when kids are natured with love and happiness they can be anything” commented one Facebook user on Laerskool Vryburg’s post.

“It’s so refreshing to see such a happy bunch of kids. I salute you teacher,” said another.

“Wait!! I love the teacher… awesomeness, his learners are the happiest!”

Apparently, this is not the first that Smith, who regrets his teachers never danced with him, made headlines.

In 2015 he stood on a street corner carrying a placard, which indicated that he was seeking his dream woman (trouvrou) and that old “tannies” and chancers needn’t apply.
