Kommunity Kulintang to Feature Pangalay Dance in February

The Manilatown Heritage Foundation in collaboration with Kapwa presents
Kommunity Kulintang
Saturday, February 8th from 2-4pm

A short performance will lead to a Pangalay dance workshop followed by a community jam session.  Participants will learn basic music rhythms and dance steps and practice their learning at the jam session where they will be joined by experienced kulintang artists.  All ages and levels are welcome.  Families are especially encouraged to attend together.  The intention of this workshop is to provide absolute beginners with a welcoming space to explore and ask questions and provide experienced kulintang artists an opportunity to “practice their chops”.
