Transcript of PHILIPPINE DANCES
This has resulted in such a unique blend of cultures in the country that determining the end of native culture and the beginning of foreign cultures is so hard to trace Filipinos nowadays, fortunately, appreciate both worlds. Whether the dance is cha-cha, ballroom, folk or ballet, surely the Filipinos can always dance to the beat. The Pandanggo sa Ilaw is the Filipino folk dance that originally was created from the song of the same title. The old folk song was created in the 1970s.
The Ballet Federation of the Philippines had a brief but remarkable life in the mid-
It organized the annual national ballet festival from 1976 to 1978 and
produced several full-evening ballet classics and original Filipino works. It drew
provincial groups to perform in Manila and toured the provinces with Coppelia
and a divertissement repertoire.
BALLET Dance Concert Company filled the gap at the start of the 1970s under the
leadership of Vella Damian, Eric Cruz, and Exequiel Banzali, with Cruz doing
most of the choreographic work, represented by his durable Carmen.
Dance Theater and Dance Concert performed on their own steam in Scotland and
China, respectively. They produced fine dancers in Irene and Hazel Sabas, Sophia
Radaic, Sonia Domingo, Mary Anne Santamaria, Anna Villadolid, Lisa Macuja,
Eloisa Enerio, Marivic Mapili-Vela, Yvonne Cutaran, Mitto Castillo, Victor
Madrona, Ricardo Ella, Augustus Damian, Osias Barroso, Vivencio Samblaceño,
who were trained mainly by Layag-Radaic and Damian. In 1970 Alice Reyes founded her modern dance company which eventually became
Ballet Philippines. Although the company began by emphasizing modern dance,
they also did classical ballet classics for their season. The company has staged
many productions and revivals of Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, The
Nutcracker Suite, Giselle, Don Quixote, among others, as well as modern
ballet pieces like Firebird and Carmen. Disco is a genre of dance-oriented pop music that blends elements of funk and soul music Disco styles dominated mainstream pop charts. Disco songs usually have soaring, often reverberated vocals over a steady four-on-the-floor beat Filipino dance group Disco Fantasy In 1987, in the euphoric afterglow of the people power revolt, Hariraya, Dance
Theater, Manila Metropolis, the Julie Borromeo Dance Company, Sony Lopez-
Gonzalez, Gener Caringal, and Leonor Orosa-Goquingco pooled their talents and
formed the PBT.
BALLET Although now less reflective of the individual needs and tastes of
its directors, who constitute Philippine Ballet’s artistic council, the company
attempts to maximize the use of talents in annual seasons at the CCP and on
provincial tours and outreach performances, generate a workable financial support
system to run a dance company, develop its artists, and cultivate a regular audience
for dance. It has an admirable body of classical and foreign works which,
however, should be balanced with more Filipino choreographies; nevertheless, it
sustains a premier of local ballets at least once a year. Philippine Ballet Theater has
also saved some of the older works commissioned by earlier companies, works
that form a great pool of original Filipino creations, many of which are still waiting
to be rescued. Filipinos have always been copious followers of the American colonizers, since the turn of the century. So much so that whatever dances were in vogue in the United States were always copied and made popular in the Philippines During the past decade, ballroom dancing has seen a strong almost unexplainable following among Filipinos. Practically everyone dances ballroom, or has at least tried it out. The end of the second world war brought along new hope. New attitudes for a better future were reflected in the dances. Many local music bands rose to popularity as they played the modern Western music.
Dancers gained prominence through their suave style and complicated footwork. One of these groups was The Big 4, composed of Chito Feliciano, Tito Garcia, Louie Ysmael, and Archie Lacson. All of them, except for the late Chito Feliciano, continue to lay claim to being one of the best dancers in the country. Pinoy Jazz Traditions traces the history not only of jazz, but of all American music, from the days of traditional Dixieland Jazz through the Swing and Bebop eras to the present day. the original form of jazz dance had moved from tap to other styles of dance entertainment. By the early 1900s, people began doing such dances as the cakewalk, Charleston, jitterbug, swing and the Lindy Hop, all of which were forms of jazz dancing "back in the day." Today, jazz dance has evolved into contemporary or theatrical dancing, where ballet has been incorporated into the jazz style. Hip-hop jazz dancing is yet another form that is gaining popularity, using dance styles and techniques taken from the streets.
The Philippines is probably one of the first countries in Asia to appreciate or be exposed to hip hop because of its history. As a former territory and important strategic base of the U.S., Filipinos had been greatly influenced by the American culture. The Americans not only brought their way of life but their music as well. In the new millennium, Filipino hip-hop rivalled Pinoy rock's traditional popularity amongst Filipino youth. Artists who are currently active and have released both rap albums and music videos in the Philippines since 2000 include: Andrew E, Denmark, Francis M, and Gloc-9.
