<<Dance World Cup Final 2019 - A memorable dancing journey in Portugal>>

A-School sent thriving dancers of primary and secondary divisions to participate in the Dance World Cup Final 2019 in Braga, Portugal in July. With their brilliant performances, our talented girls achieved record breaking results.

The Jazz Dance Team of the secondary division was ranked the 9th in Junior Large Group Commercial category while solo dancers G9 KWOK Atrie and G8 NG Pui Nam Ashley were awarded the Bronze medal in Ballroom and Latin Style Competition- Latin Junior Solo Cha Cha Cha and the twelfth place in Children Solo Ballet Repertoire with Pointe Shoes respectively, the highest rankings of the top Asian participants in these categories!

To our surprise, Ashley received an invitation to a masterclass to be held in Barcelona in October for her excellence and talented ballet dancing performance.

The Chinese Dance Team of the primary division also broke our history by reaching the fourth place in the Children Large Group National and Folklore. In addition, the trio Chinese Dance team joined the Trio Group National and Folklore Group and their international debut earned the team the twelfth place.

Apart from the competition, our students also toured around and learned about the history and culture of Portugal. They were thrilled to take part in the opening ceremony of the Final and be part of the parade with 6,000 dancers from 52 countries.

Dance World Cup offered a precious opportunity for our dancers to explore their capabilities in dancing, foster the aesthetic of dance and most importantly widen their global vision. It was definitely a memorable and fruitful experience for our students. A-School will continue to provide more platforms to nurture our students’ aesthetic development and broaden their international horizons.
