About G.O.P.

WHAT IS G.O.P DANCE INC.?
BY: PEDRO AVILÉS

        G.O.P dance Inc. is an independent urban dance corporation where members demonstrate their talents – already evident in them – through synchronized routines in various styles: Hip Hop, Jazz, Zumba, Salsa, Bachata-Guajira, Acro/Tricks, Break 101, Girly, L.A. Style, Popping, House, Krump, amongst others.

HISTORY

             G.O.P. started out twenty two (22) years ago [January 12, 1994] led by four (4) young people interested in showing their art to the public.

             It was founded by choreographer and producer Pedro Avilés, who had the desire to create a group in which the sentiments of the youth would be expressed through positive messages. What better way to express this than dancing, which is the soul of youth and never gets old, while demonstrating what’s inside of each person?

          The name G.O.P. DANCE Inc. arises because of a promise and its acronym stands for “Group of Peace”, in “our own street way of life”. By taking a Ying-Yang logo (☯) – symbol of good and evil together – in the letter O, it portrays that “in everything good there is something bad and in everything bad, something good”.

        In the beginning, the group was helped and sponsored unconditionally with practice facilities by the María Auxiliadora Parish of Cantera (Oratory San Juan Bosco) to which G.O.P. is very grateful to, as well as the San Juan municipality and its directors, who also supported the group with facilities.  Currently, G.O.P. is located in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, seconds from the Bellas Artes Center.

ADMISSION

        To be admitted to G.O.P. Dance, the candidates must possess the necessary talent and coordination. Also, they cannot have any type of vice while being part of the organization. This way, these young men and women are distracted and “brought out” from the dangers of street life.

             G.O.P. DANCE Inc. is comprised of young dancers between the ages of fourteen  minimum to thirty-three years maximum (exceptions considerable) of different cities in the metropolitan area, including residential neighborhoods, developments, and sectors. In short, we have all kinds of people, that when joined together make up the best Puerto Rican urban dance company.

                By our hands more than 9,870 young men and women have passed, and this number increases year by year.
