He started dancing when he was seven years old but before that he enjoyed playing soccer with his best friend. His best friend even encouraged him to try out dancing since he was so good at soccer. Motsepe recalls, “My best friend and I used to play soccer, and he said I should try something different. I went to try dancing and just fell in love with it. I was like, ‘This is fun.'” 

His mother has always been supportive of his dance career. He even jokes that, “[watching me dance] made my mom happy. She was like, ‘Oh my God, I don't have to do laundry every day.’”

When he started dancing he even got more disciplined.

Motsepe explains, “I was disciplined with school and soccer, but [my mom] said as soon as I started dancing, my discipline of how I treat myself and how I treat other people was even more special because when you're dancing ballroom or Latin, you're not dancing by yourself. You always have a partner. You're in tune as one. You always make sure you give 100 percent, she gives 100 percent. You always make sure you are the frame and she [the partner] is the picture — that the woman looks good when the man takes care of her.”
