Some students from G.P. Vanier took part in the first-ever Destination Imagination’s virtual world championship and walked away in the top 20.
G.P. Vanier improv students competed in the annual global finals in an online tournament that played out entirely on a live-streaming app, a first of its kind for the globally recognized competition.
Up against teams from China and Poland, students were tasked to create a story using visual effects and deliver a performance using Zoom.
Vanier’s Team Chance performance earned 4th place in the Virtual Team Challenge and 6th in Instant Challenge during week two of the championships.
Of the thousands of entries from across the world, the team earned a remarkable 11th place finish overall in the online event.
Team Managers Greg Kochanuk and Lori Mazey were impressed with the students’ tenacity to compete under the new reality of COVID-19 restrictions and please of their results.
“To compete against hundreds of teams, many of whom were using professional studio equipment to complete their entries, is remarkable in itself. To be recognized as one of the very
best in the world at Improv performance in this entirely new presentation platform, however, is truly ground-breaking,” shared Kochanuk.
