We knew Shakira had some serious Colombian dancing coming our way when we saw her introduce dancer Liz Dany Campo Díaz on Instagram.
“Do you want to meet the woman who taught me how to dance champeta?” Shakira asks in a video. “This 18-year-old kid, from Barranquilla, is my teacher! She’s fantastic, a hard worker, she supports her entire family and she’s taught me so many things.”
Those “things” were seen around the world when Shakira danced during the Super Bowl halftime show, performing champeta -- a genre with African roots from Colombia’s Atlantic coast -- to the tune of “Waka Waka.”
