Each group showcased their best, turning weaknesses and strengths into the advantages of each group that deserve appreciation. The focus on preparation and self-control while performing was the general message from the Rector to each group. Despite appearing simple, everyone was willing to participate. There were no barriers between the young men of Don Bosco and the spirit of young people who continue to sing, shout, dance, and jump, as long as there is no deceit among each other.
