Under the able leadership of its Founder and Artistic Director, Choreographer and Researcher— Ramon Arevalo Obusan —the ROFG has so far gone on three successful European tours in 13 countries, and has many performances in various continents to its credit. Though steeped in international recognition, the ROFG has never forgotten the people who are the very source of its pride.

For the past two decades it has documented and performed the rituals of more . than 50 ethno-linguistic groups in the country. With ' more than 20 outstanding full-length Filipino dance works—among which are the memorable suites from the Cordillera, Bagobo, T'boli, Tausug, Maranao, the Aeta and the Talaandig, among others—the ROFG has served to highlight the authenticity of the movements and costumes of these people.
