TENOM:  The Sabah United Tobilung Association (Tobisa) Dance Group from Kota Marudu made history when it was chosen to represent Malaysia in the World Cup Dance final competition for the fourth time since 2014.

This is the best achievement of this dance group which managed to maintain its performance at international level, said Tobisa deputy president Jaiping Minsu here yesterday.
