They will perform their piece ‘The Chocolatier’ which will be one of just 22 pieces performed on the night.

“This is the first time a dance group from Gibraltar has been selected to perform in this event. When we decided to enter we sent in eight piece and just to have one selected is an incredible achievement, “ said Principal of the academy Paulette Finlayson.
