Chance to shine
Dancesport sa Sugbu is a competition for a cause that serves as the culmination activity of hundreds of child trainees, mostly underprivileged.
The event provides an opportunity for these barangay child trainees to get a first-hand experience of what it is like joining in a professionally officiated dance competition in the hope that the exposure will instill in them self-discipline, self-confidence, and self-worth. This experience will inspire the children to train harder and aspire for a better future.
The WDSF Cebu Open 2018 and 10th Dancesport Sa Sugbu is organized by the DanceSport Team Cebu International Inc. (DTCII), a non-stock, non-profit, non-government organization composed of volunteer dance teachers who conduct regular free dancesport workshops and follow-through trainings.
