COMMUNITY EVENTS

Here are some community events for you to check out!

INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTARS

OV students, Gabriel White and Lyubov Morgan, strike a ballroom pose at last month's Blackpool Junior Festival in the UK.

Congratulations to OV students, Gabriel White (8th grade) and Lyubov Morgan (7th grade), for placing 32nd in the jive out of 155 dance teams from all over the world! Event was held in Blackpool, England two weeks ago. Way to go, Gabriel & Lyubov! We are proud of you!

Gabriel shared, "I would describe my experience in Blackpool, England as enlightening. I am blessed to be supported by my friends and family and be given this opportunity. It was amazing to see the dancers there who have worked so hard to achieve a place at this historic competition. I had a fantastic time there and greatly enjoyed dancing at Winter Gardens. This place is beautiful and ornate. The location looks like something from a museum with the sculptured ceiling and balconies. We also danced in the tower ballroom while in Blackpool. That was like dancing in a beautiful palace. Going to England is an incredible experience and I wish everyone in the world could experience it."

Here's how Lyubov described her experience: "Blackpool is like a dream come true. If you really want to know how well you are doing in the international ranking, you go to Blackpool. It is the largest ballroom competition in the world, and it is my favorite competition of all!”
