GALLIPOLIS — The Gallipolis Twirling Angels are headed to Orlando, Fla. to represent Gallia County later this year at Disney World.
These students are made up of students of Rio Grande Elementary, Green Elementary, Gallia Academy Middle School, River Valley Middle School and Oak Hill Middle School.
According to Heather Sola, twirling coach, they have shown that dedication and hard work pay off. The twirlers as a whole have learned 10 routines since July. On average each girl typically learns two to three routines during the entire season. Sola explained that they set a goal and have surpassed it.
“Not only have they practiced countless hours over the last few months, but they and their parents have been able to fundraise for part of their expenses thanks to our wonderful community support,” said Sola.
“The generosity in our small town is nothing short of heartwarming,” stated Sola. “We are very blessed to call Gallia County home.”
Since they began preparing for the competition in Disney World, the twirlers have gained confidence in their ability to perform as individuals and as a team. Through this they have also witnessed the support of Gallia County. They will be having a send off recital on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 3 p.m. on the University of Rio Grande’s Lyne Center Upper Gym. They will be performing their Disney Routine, everyone is welcome to attend.
“Please keep these cuties in your thoughts and prayers as they make their way to Disney World to represent their hometown,” stated Sola.
