This yearâ€™s Maltina Dance All reality television show was launched with the call for entry late June. As usual, this year, for 21 days in the academy, ten families will slug it out learning and performing a variety of dance styles. The winner will go home with the grand prize of N2.5million and a brand new family SUV.
The first and second runners up will also get N1million and N500, 000 respectively. The show is expected to bring to fore the familiesâ€™ essence and values of unity, cooperation, vitality and creativity within the Nigerian context in a contemporary way.
The programme made its debute in 2007 and has since remained the nationâ€™s first and only family dance reality TV show featuring talented dancers selected from various regions across the country. In 2007, the Onye family carted away the grand prize. 2008 witnessed the emergence of the incumbent winner family, the Opuwaris.
