GAME ON brought together different styles of dancing all revolving around the theme of GAMES. SOPA dance tutors delved into various types of games which included traditional toys such as Cat and Mouse, the Pinata, Dolls and Cards to sports such as Tennis, the Olympic Games and Kung Fu and the more modern games like the Cup Song, Musical Trivia, Super Mario, Candy Crush and the Hunger Games. Around 150 dance students attending Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Lyrical Jazz, Hip hop and Spanish Dance performed to two packed houses.
