THE Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) continues to celebrate the success of the national team in the recently concluded 31st Southeast Asian Games held in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The PSC’s ‘Rise Up! Shape Up!’ special episode this Saturday, June 4, is entitled “Step Forward with Steph” with SEA Games award-winning dancesport duo of Stephanie Sabalo and Michael Angelo Marquez.

The webisode will showcase the graceful movements of Sabalo and Marquez as they lead a Dancesport Clinic with women of all ages in a small community in Bay, Laguna.

The Sabalo-Marquez tandem led the Philippines’ dancesport team to a successful SEA Games stint by bagging the country’s first gold medal in the Latin Cha Cha event while clinching silvers in Latin Jive and Five Dances.

During the 2019 Philippines SEA Games, their tandem also won a gold medal in the Five Dances Latin and Paso Doble and clinched a silver in the Kaunas Open held in Lithuania.

Their dynamic dance team has exemplified sports excellence in dancesport and gained the respect of the global audience.

PSC Women in Sports Oversight Commissioner Celia H. Kiram is glad that the Sabalo-Marquez dance duo made time to demonstrate the basic steps in dancesport for the women of Bay, Laguna.

“It means a lot that they are sharing their expertise on dancesport because it is one way of inspiring young girls and women to enjoy the sport. This is a way to introduce the sport on the ground as well as show Philippine sports excellence in action,” Comm. Kiram states.

Kiram will also share interesting and fun facts on dance in her regular segment “K-Isport.”
