Author: Charles Gomez & Co

Charles Gomez & Company has a longstanding tradition of supporting local musical and artistic talent. Over the years, the Firm has contributed significantly to the cultural landscape of Gibraltar, sponsoring numerous events and nurturing the growth of young artists. Charles Gomez & Co are honoured to support May’s extremely promising career, looking forward to witnessing her continued success and impact in the dance community.

At 10 years’ old, May Montegriffo Santos has made an impact in the world of dance, having been awarded two international prizes at the prestigious Dancer of the Globe Open Qualifiers in June 2024:

- Nominee for the Dancer of the Globe Finals.
- 30% Joffrey Ballet School Scholarship.

May brought home a total of 8 medals (4 gold, 3 silver, one bronze) from that competition, a testament to her advanced skill, dedication and passion.

When asked about her achievements to date and her goals for the future, May told us:

“I’m very proud of my achievements especially as it was my first year in the Junior category. I was awarded dancer of the globe, as well as two scholarships and it made me very happy.”

“My targets for the future are to better myself, learn more within the world of dance and to win more golds.”

On the 27th of June, Charles Gomez & Co’s Lilly Gomez attended the Danza Academy End of Year 2024 Showcase at the Alameda Openair Theatre where over 100 dancers from ages 3 – 16 performed.

Lilly Gomez said:

“It was fantastic to see the high-level of talent Gibraltar has to offer. May performed with elegance, advanced technical know-how and passion, and it was a privilege to meet her and her parents after the showcase. I look forward to keeping up with her dancing career as it continues to flourish.”

Speaking on the success of the showcase, Director at Danza Academy Anne-Marie told us:

“’Our evening was simply perfect more than a show it felt like a party. It was a great celebration of all the amazing work that goes on in our Academy as has been the case for the past 33 years. Our showcase was a time to reflect and absorb this past years’ experiences and personal journeys and a further mental /physical preparation for our Competition Team which are off in 10 days time to The Global Dance Open 2024 Finals in The Netherlands.”

“May is an amazingly mature 10-year-old dancer with an incredibly strong physique. She always faces challenges with extremely hard work and determination. Nothing will stand in her way. She always succeeds because heart is always placed in every move she makes. May was born a Champion”
