PNA Stationers owners, Darryl and Gussie Eberhardt donated an extra R8000 to the Jo Jackson Dance Company dancers before they flew out to compete in the Battle of the Giants competition, last week.
The dance group were the recent overall PNA Ultimate performer runner-up, wowing the judges with an energetic hip hop routine and winning a R2000 cash prize.
The trip cost each dancer R10000, with the extra funds donated from PnA helping the group in making the trip possible.
“I can not thank PnA enough,” said teacher, Jo Jackson.
Battle of the Giants is the first of three qualifying rounds to the World Championships which will be taking place in Poland later this year.
In order to qualify for the World Championships the group will need to come in one of the top three positions during each round.
“I totally believe in them and believe that we going to make East London proud. We are really positive, but every year we are blown away with the level of talent and quality of dancing in each category at this competition,” said Jackson.
Gussie Eberhardt wished the team good luck as they got ready to board their flight to Johannesburg.
“I hope they do well. They are really talented dancers and deserve this opportunity,” Eberhardt said.
