The night glittered with all the sparkling costumes and dazzling moves from the participants of Dancesport Competition last November 25, 2015 at the Provincial Cultural and Farmer’s Training Center as part of the commemoration of the 86th Provincial Anniversary and 6th Pas’ungko S’g MisOcc Festival.
The competition was categorized by level – elementay, secondary, and college/open level. The preliminary rounds were divided into four dance derbies. In each dance derby, a kind of dance was assigned to every level. The contenders danced cha-cha, samba, rumba, and jive. After the declaration of the top 3 contestants in every level, Provincial Vice-Governor Aurora Virginia M. Almonte conveyed her delight upon seeing the talented dancers in Misamis Occidental. She also shared how the biggest stars of today such as Jennifer Lopez started their career through dancing. Of course, she also stressed its health benefits.
In the final rounds, the top 3 contenders from the elementary level danced cha-cha, samba for the secondary level, and jive for the college/open level. Awarding of prizes was headed by Provincial Governor Herminia M. Ramiro together with Vice- Governor Almonte, Schools Division Superintendent Jonathan dela Peña, and Chairperson of the Dancesport Committee, Ms. Elma Gula. Thereafter, a dance for all ensued.
