.....this is the best Festival in years, thanks to the Philippines for your music and dance.......c'est magnifique.....

MME. CHRISTINE GUFFROY,
PRESIDENT LOS RODOS
CHAMONIARD FESTIVAL
CHAMONIX, FRANCE
SEPTEMBER 1994
 

"....the Bayanihan Philippine Dance Company epitomizes Filipino artistic excellence in terms of individual skills, group virtuosity and in entire national tradition in performing arts.  The Bayanihan was main feature of Fiesta Philippine in London."

Bayanihan never ceases to relive the past.  In the footstep of their ancestor who danced to celebrate the gods, giving life to the sacred tribal myths or by expressing through simple natural body language the marvels of the world surrounding them, the Bayanihan, with Mariposa, danced an imitation of the movements of butterflies or Tinikling, mimicking the bird whom the villagers try to catch in the rice field and celebrating with every step the miracle of nature

All the delicate sentiments of the Eastern civilization deeply expressed with a refinement and smiles could be seen again in Banga-Salidsid where, to celebrate a marriage, the young girls balanced water pots on their heads, or Pandanggo sa Ilaw, a graceful display where the dancers swayed with oil lamps in their heads, illuminated against the night sky of Monaco.

A very special night here the delicate accents bloomed like in an enchanted garden:  the rose offered to Prince Rainier, the finale interpreting "A la balle Fontaine", with invisible warmth, sacred and infinite, radiating from the heart.

A moving evening in all respects.
