Comments from the Audience – 1997 Season Performances

“The rural dances and songs reflected the simple but always happy nature of the Filipino people. The show was well rounded and provided the background and history that so many times is lacking for non-Filipinos… I also liked the dances from Mindanao. The girl dancing on top of the two bamboos carried on the men’s shoulders kept me on the edge of my seat. The grace and steadfastness she was able to maintain was incredible.”
