Jordan Intermediate Dance Team Takes First Place 🥇
Jordan Intermediate’s intramural dance team known as JDC brought home a Gold Medal First Place Award in the Hip Hop Division at the Showstopper dance competition in Anaheim. Not only was this JDC’s first prestigious dance competition, but this was also the team’s first time being awarded a full scholarship to compete among other teams in the county. Led by their GGUSD home-grown coach, Dorothy Ho of Charade Dance, these young dancers committed endless hours of their time and effort to this pursuit. With dedication and grit, these dancers learned that nothing is impossible!  #GGUSDpride
