‘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.’
