Kyrie Irving: Teaching kids in South Africa how to dance one classroom at a time (video)

Kyrie Irving, the dynamic and budding young superstar for the Cleveland Cavaliers, spent some time visiting schools in South Africa over the summer as part of UNICEF’s Schools for Africa initiative.

Said Irving about the eye-opening experience: “Even with the challenges they face, it was inspiring to see how much the kids want to learn and how hard the teachers are working,” he said. “I saw first-hand how early childhood education and school sports activities are making a difference in these kids’ lives.”

And by “making a difference in these kids’ lives,” that of course meant that Irving, among other things, showed off some stellar dance moves during a visit to one classroom.

Some say that the problems of the world are too great and so numerous that it can lead a person to believe that they are powerless and cannot make a difference or initiate change. Kyrie Irving shows us that busting a move in front of a bunch of kids can have a positive — and entertaining — effect. Or something.
