Finally, RIPRISA Champ!

The Eastbridge Dance Troupe won first place in the Rizal Private Schools Association (RIPRISA) during the competition held at the Sumulong Memorial Junior College in Taytay last last September 13, 2019.

Eastbridge which represented the municipality of Rodriguez in the said competition is one of the twelve municipalities which participated. Second place went to Cainta and third place to Antipolo.

It was a sweet victory for Eastbridge which had two other previous trips to the said competition in the past without getting any place at all. The competition organizers strictly monitored the length of each performance and Eastbridge almost exceeded the time limit when their number stopped with only one second to spare in the clock. Later it was learned though that even if the team exceeded the time limit, the overall score obtained by the Eastbridge dancers was enough to cover the deduction and still win with a comfortable margin.

The performance which was the fourth among the twelve was applauded at various intervals by most members of the audience, not just the supporters, giving an early sign that the dance troupe would bag the championship.

Eastbridge Dance Troupe will represent the province of Rizal in the NAPSPHIL regional competition to be held in Batangas City on September 28, 2019.
