Bougie and Rene

Introducing BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy: BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy was established in 2000 by the very professional Bougie and Rene Naidoo.


Dancing is the rhythmic movement within a given space, usually to music, for the purpose of expressing an idea or emotion, releasing energy, or simply taking delight in the movement itself. Learning to dance with BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy allows a student to gain poise and self-confidence, build skills or improves technique. Rene Naidoo politely states “Our classes will increase your social interactions and create friendships”.


Bougie and Rene Naidoo are former South African Ballroom and Latin Champions. They are also World Line Dance Champions.

This amazing couple administers the South African Line Dance Association (SALDA). The association encompass a vision for the “Promotion of Line Dancing as a recognized dance sport both Nationally and Internationally on a competitive and social level”. Their mission is to incorporate all line dancers in South Africa under one governing body and to promote development in all communities especially amongst youth in South Africa. SALDA is an affiliate of the Federation Dance Sport South Africa (FEDANSA), United Country Western Dance Council (UCWDC), and the World Country Line Dance Sport Federation (WCLDSF). BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy is a member of SALDA.


This incredible Dance Academy has grown to new heights. Bougie and Rene teach in the north of Durban in suburbs such as Umhlanga, Mount Edgecombe, Phoenix and Verulam. Lessons are also taught centrally in Overport and Verulam. BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy classes are also taught in Chatsworth, Isipingo and as far south as Amanzimtoti.

Aftermath DJ Club

BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy has hired Aftermath DJ Club for a number of its Socials. I have personally witnessed the effort the dance academy places in developing the youth. The Socials have a unique feel about them and skills gained by its students is clearly visible. I really enjoy dj’ying for BNR Couple & Line Dance Academy as the atmosphere is always friendly and fun. The music for these awesome socials consisted of BallroomLine DancingJazzR ‘n B, 80’s, Pop and Local Music. I am always pleased when I meet students from other dance academies such as JC Dance Club, La Paloma Dance Academy and Pavi’s School of Dance attending these socials.
