BATTLE OF 'GAPO's BEST DANCE GROUPS
The biggest and most awaited dance contest in Olongapo City will be launched by the Sports and Youth Development Office (CSYDO) on May 28, 2011, 5:00 at East Tapinac Oval, Olongapo City.
Touted as one massive dance spectacle with the ten (10) best dance groups competing, the public can't wait to find out who will step-up for the ultimate glory of becoming the first ever winner of Revive the Oval: A Dance Showdown.
"The thrust of the City Sports and Youth development Office, hand in hand with SK Federation of Olongapo City, is to make sure city-initiated programs and activities are made available with variety and diversity to a wider scope possible," according to Ryan Marvin S. Mabeza, Chief of CSYDO.
The Revive the Oval: Dance Showdown premiere will feature the group Kids Next Door, the Improuvers, Perlas ng Silangan, One God, Zero Degrees, Lovely Catz Family, Isang Lahi, B Crew, The Finest and Intensity Crew.
All the finalists will be getting consolation prizes with the ten thousand (P10,000) for the champion, 2nd place seven thousand (P7,000) and 3rd place four thousand (P4,000) pesos.
“Maaaring tumaas pa ang mga prizes kapag nadagdagan ang mga sponsor,” Mabeza added.
Each of the ten finalist groups will be given three hundred (300) free admission tickets and the CSYDO will also hand out one thousand five hundred (1500) tickets with control numbers.
There will be a raffle draw on the day of the competition. Winners in the raffle draw can have the chance to bring home Gift Certificates, two (2) cell phones, T-shirts and caps.
“This dance competition will showcase youth empowerment for social progress,” remarked Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.
