DAGUPAN CITY – For the second time in a row, Dance Philippines is back in this year’s celebration of the Bangus Festival when they will show their wares on April 28 at the city plaza.

Event chairman Councilor Jose Netu Tamayo disclosed that all dance crews with a minimum of five members and a maximum member of 25 are welcome to join the competition.

“Cash prizes ranging from P5,000 to P25,000 await the winners in this year’s competition,” revealed Tamayo.

According to him, the champion will receive P25,000; first runner-up,  P15,000; second runner-up,P10,000; and third runner-up, P5,000.

Dance routine, which may be in any hip-hop genres, must be up to maximum of seven minutes.

Tamayo said it is important that the dance elements like body movement (form and style), space (use of dimension), time (rhythm and musicality), and energy (expression, stamina and power) are evident during the competition.

He, however, cautioned participating dance crews from doing deadly stunts.

“Such act may be grounds for disqualification of the participating dance crew,” said Tamayo. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO/March 27, 2018)
