About Umhlanga (Reed Dance Day)
The Umhlanga is a traditional dance where twenty to thirty thousand of Swaziland's maidens congregate and dance for the public. The initial reason for this tradition was to encourage young women to abstain from sexual activities and preserve their virginity until they were matured enough to get married, according to E MKHONTA. There are also elder women at the camps that advise the girls on marriage related issues and how to handle themselves in a dignified manner. The girls gather at the Queen Mothers royal village.
