The Philippines is known for having several folk dances and festival dances. These dances have been integrated into Philippine society over the course of many years and are embedded in Philippine culture.
Filipinos considered dancing as a religious activity, thanksgiving for a fruitful harvest, a victorious battle, and a prosperous voyage or recovery from sickness. Folk and festival dances also played an important part in the social activities of the Filipinos.
The BOPPFSI, Inc. aims to revisit Philippine culture through dance competitions to showcase different folk and festival dances. We are all inviting everyone to join this exciting event at BALIK KASAYAHAN SA ROTORUA 2023.
