The PAGASA Youth have partnered with Baybayin Craft and the University Student Council (USC) of UP Diliman to launch the first ever Dance Forum on June 14, from 3:00pm-6:00pm at the UP Sunken Garden.
Walang usapan -- sayawan lang! The Dance forum hopes to start the process of re-enlivening the dancing spirit of the Filipino people...thus, expect a series of dance fora in different spaces and venues happening soon!
What's more exciting is that during the event, the Liping Baybayin rhythm -- an original dance movement inspired by the ancient Filipino syllabary was also launched. Known as Sulat Baybayin and mistakenly called alibata, its roots can be traced to Pinoy consciousness. A group of 8 children from the foothills of Mt. Banahaw in Lucban, Quezon started to learn the dance last April 11, 2009 and shared their skill and knowledge during the dance forum.
Dance your heart out and connect to the Filipino dancing spirit!
