Pilipino Dance Festival - Holon Israel
The show must go on – or so they say. Despite the difficult, complicated situation now in Israel, our embassy still decided to push though with the cultural show called “Sayaw in Israel: Festival of Philippine Dances.”
The affair happened at the Steinberg Theater at Holon, a city of west Israel last Saturday, 29th of July, 2006. It was quite near Jafo–Tel Aviv, making it really convenient for us because of the proximity.
Overall, it was again a very successful project by the embassy together with the Filipino community here.
Because of the good number of nice pictures I have taken of the event, I might try posting most of them here – which would mean two or three posts of nothing but great, colorful pictures of our folk and traditional dances.
This batch of pictures show the Cordillera dances, or the dances of the mountain people. Their dances are dances of joy, recreation, for good luck or bountiful harvest.
Names and brief descriptions of the dances are already captioned within some of the pictures.
