ART IS A BANG: Philippine Baranggay Folk Dance Troupe Celebrates its 65th Anniversary with BALANGAY

The Cultural Centre of the Philippines and the Philippine Baranggay Folk Dance Troupe (PBFDT) join forces to celebrate the 65th Anniversary of the PBFDT – the longest running folk dance troupe in the country, founded in 1946 by Dr Paz-Cielo A Belmonte – and proudly presents their gala show 'Balangay'.

Balangay is a traditional boat used for centuries by fisher folk reaching the shores of the Philippines, and in the context of the PBFDT anniversary, connotes a vessel which in the span of 65 years have sailed the oceans of the world to many different countries, cities and stages. Bringing with it an open window to what is the complex and culturally rich history of the Philippines.

The show is a tribute to the PBFDT's founder and artistic director's life long dedication, passion and love for her work as a researcher, teacher and choreographer, showcasing original works which the dance troupe is renowned for on both the national and international stage.
