QuickSteps Trip to Cebu, Philippines

QuickSteps Trip to Cebu,

Cebu, Philippines

Background

After QuickSteps went on a cruise in 2016, students voted Philippines as their preferred destination. This is likely because they've seen so many amazing Filipinos - our own dance teachers Jayson and Rommel, and Kevin and Roi who joined us on the 2016 cruise.

QuickSteps has formed a strong relation with DanceSport Team Cebu City (DTCC) who train 1000s of children in the art of ballroom dancing. Many of these children are very poor who live in Cebu City slums. Those children who succeed in the organisation are given amazing opportunities to improve their lives, including competing overseas.

Here is video of what the DTCC do:
