KULTURANG PILIPINO ENSEMBLE OF UTAH / Filipino Dance
Saturday, May 18th
1:15 – 1:45 PM
Kulturang Pilipino Ensemble is a group of volunteers from different sectors in the community, joined together with the common interest of showcasing a kaleidoscope of Philippine culture and traditions: from the Cordillera mountain province of Northern Luzon, the native and tribal dance of Islamic Mindanao, the Spanish influenced dances and from the traditional rural Christian lowland dances in expression of the Filipino way of life.
Through their dance performances and cultural stage productions and appearances, they hope to establish and provide opportunities for Filipino–American youth and non-Filipino friends to gain knowledge and appreciation of their cultural heritage, foster friendships in the community and create fundraising events in support of cultural endeavors and community service missions.
