A network of Gibraltarians living abroad has been set up by the Government in the form of a website. ‘Gibraltar Internationals’ serves as a web based directory allowing for hundreds of Gibraltarians living abroad, as well as Gibraltar-based professionals, to register their details on the webpage.
The Government has today asked for locals with relatives or friends abroad to contact them and make them aware of this initiative. A BETA version of the site has been launched for the time being in order to test the initiative. Once the Government is satisfied with the webpage, the final version will be launched.
Local Dance Academy, Stylos dazzled judges at leading talent show competition, Starpower this weekend in the UK. The team, made up of fourteen young girls aged between ten and eighteen years, stole prizes for both the Allstars and Power division. The Academy, headed by Lillian Montero and choreographed by her daughter Lauren Montero also won first prize for the Lyrical, jazz and contemporary categories.
Starpower, a predominantly American contest, is centred around lyrical and jazz dancing. The show was brought to the UK five years ago and has since picked up a prestigious following. Commenting on why the team entered the competition, Lillian explained that their lyrical and jazz dance styles are particularly American in technique.
