Dance Festival, Holon Israel - More Photos
Here are more pictures taken at the Filipino Dance Festival at Holon Israel. These are pictures of the Mindanao Ethnic Dances. Such dances symbolize royalty and mysticism, as well as the uniqueness of the culture of our island brothers from the South of the Philippine Islands.
It is apparent that the Mindanaoan dances boast of intricate and graceful arm and hand gestures and movements. Most costumes are shimmering and colorful, a feast to the eyes.
It should be noted that the performers of the dance festival are all non-professional dancers. Many are officers and employees of our embassy, while the rest are our caregivers here in Israel.
