FOlkdance Competition - Sandurot Festival 2014

Folkdance Competition – Sandurot Festival 2014

Folkdance competitions are one of our declared favorites. The Sandurot Folkdance Competition 2014 made no difference. It is always great seeing the facebook-generation honoring the Filipino traditional dances and spending their free time in practicing. Seven competitors were participating under the watchful eyes of honorable Mayor Manuel Teves Sagarbarria and his right hand, Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling.

The cheers from the audience motivated all groups to give their best on stage, resulting in an interesting, colorful show on a very high level. Following some pictures in loose order of the:

It was a hard task for the board of judges to determine the winner, which forced Woodrow “RR” Maquiling Jr. to extend his speech on stage until the final decision was made. He – of course – mastered that with professional bravura.

The Silliman Dance Group snatched the first place just a few points ahead of their competitors. However, the big overall winner of the Sandurot 2014 Folkdance Competition was the audience, thanks to the professional performance of all contingencies, the organizers, the sound- and light crew and all involved helper.
