Sayaw Pinoy 2012

To promote the different traditions and cultures in the country, let us support the Sayaw Pinoy 2012!

The Filipino dancers will showcase their form and grace in national and regional dance floors through the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ (NCCA) longest running national dance tour, the Sayaw Pinoy.

This is one of the seven flagship projects of the  Philippine Arts Festival (PAF), Sayaw Pinoy 2012, spearheaded by the National Committee on Dance headed by Shirley Halili-Cruz. It will showcase the colorful tradition of dances and movements in the country. It aims to reach the grassroots level to discover new talents as well as to connect to more Filipino dance artists.

The dance tour brings together different dance forms such as classical ballet, folk dance, contemporary and modern dance as the country’s top dance companies perform with the local dance troupes of host cities and municipalities.            
For this year’s celebration, performances will be held in various venues in Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and NCR.

PAF is held every February in celebration of the National Arts Month in pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 683 signed in 1991. The month-long festival is spearheaded by the NCCA, led by its chairman Felipe de Leon Jr. and OIC-executive director Adelina Suemith, with Marichu Tellano as head of the Planning, Policy Formulation, and Programming Division.

For this year’s celebration, the NCCA has taken the theme “Tradisyon at Inobasyon” (Tradition and Innovation) which aims to further advance local creativity in the arts.   Eminent local and foreign artists will take part in this biggest and grandest month-long cultural gathering.
