Ten Families Admitted Into Maltina Dance All 7 Academy

After a gruelling performance at the pre grand audition show that drew applause from an excited audience, ten out of the thirteen families that arrived Lagos for the exciting family dance show Maltina Dance All season Seven (MDA 7) have qualified for the academy. The families are: Ebute, Ebenezer, Dosa, Briggs, Ibrahim, Clement, Asiyefia, Ekado, Enweribe and Ikumoinein families. The Tom, Ibeatuche and Idundun families failed to convince the judges that they have what it takes to enter the academy.

With highly scintillating performances by the 13 families, the judges found it a challenging task selecting the 10 families who would be participants in the MDA academy. The ten families that made it to the academy performed various dance style from the 1960s to modern era dance steps depicting “The Evolution” of dance, the theme for this season.
