Women & Sport Commission Celebrates UN’s Women’s Day

As part of its International Women’s Day celebrations, the Barbados Olympic Association Inc. (BOA) held a 5K run/walk under the theme- ‘Pledge For Parity’ at the Wildey Gymnasium on March 6.

A highlight of the day’s events, included the well-executed choreography demonstrated by the Christ Church Girls Green stars.

Dressed in traditional green and white outfits, with pom-pom in hand, the cheerleaders thrilled spectators with their dance moves and daring acrobatics.

Choreographer, Ursel Farier, said that extensive training and preparation was key to the success of the squad’s performance.

“These girls have been preparing since last year. They had a very extensive training for this event and the upcoming championship,” she said. “These girls go through very hard training . . . they have performed at many events over the years.”

Also performing were the Sunshine Dancers, who executed a routine to the popular Hypasounds ‘How She Like It’, much to the delight of an appreciative crowd. The group, with members ranging from 4-10 years old, comprised of students from Hindsbury
and Christ Church Girls Primary.

Choreographer Vincent Carter, called for Barbadians to recognise cheerleading as not only entertainment but a sport.
