GNDO President Wendy Garro said:
‘The majority of these dancers have performed both locally and international and competed at the highest level winning many awards at the Gibraltar International Dance Festival, Dance World Cup, Sussex Dance Festival, and even finalists at IDO international events, amongst other accolades.
‘For 2018 competitions we have organised various groups, duets and solos which were proposed by the choreographers, as well as placing performers that are from different dancing backgrounds with different choreographers who are not necessarily their own dance teachers.
‘We are delighted that everyone is doing their very best to ensure that Gibraltar is represented to the highest of standards.’
