Oh, my! Zabato Bebe found himself a very unique cheerleader and skated his way to first place in the 2015 PicSkate Urban Video Contest. The Pic Skate company was looking for one to three minute videos of Pic Skate athletes performing everywhere and anywhere on Pic® Skates. Performances could include solo, groups or adagio with scenic backgrounds, music, creative movement and costumes. A story line was not required, but encouraged. Choreography and music selection were an important consideration. The judges loved all of the videos that were submitted.
Here are the final results:
1. Zabato Bebe (16 points)
2. Virginia Ice Theatre (15 points)
3. Vitaliy Opekan (8 points)•
4. Tara Stramm (8 points)•
4. Jana Stanisavlejvic (8 points)•
