The Goh Ballet Academy is bringing home medals again from a recent worldwide competition.
At the first Vienna International Ballet Experience, held in Montana, 13-year-old Chloe Gauthier earned a gold medal and 13-year-old Abby Wang took home the Bronze medal, while in the Junior 2 division, 16-year-old Rachel Gibbs received the silver medal.
“I was a little nervous but equally excited knowing I would be dancing in master classes and on stage in front of world-renowned judges,” Gauthier said in a pres statement today. “I saw some amazing dancers compete from Cuba, Korea and parts of the US as well as Brazil and Portugal. It was an honor for me to have represented Goh Ballet at VIBE and to bring home the only Gold Medal for Canada. This would not have been possible without all the hard work and support I received from my teachers and Ms. Goh.”
The medalists now have the chance to be showcased and compete at the Vienna International Ballet Experience in Vienna, Austria, at the end of March.
