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.

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.

Sandurot Dance Sport Competition 2013

Due to heavy rain late afternoon, the Dance Sport Competition 2013 started with a delay of 90 minutes, a very wise decision of the organizers. The participants need for their steps a dry stage to make sure that nobody slips and ruins their performance, or even worse, getting injured. Five participating pairs were judged in Cha Cha, Chive and Rumba.

As it is a competition, there need to be winners. However, for us all participants were winner. Nowadays Dance Sport is not necessarily in the focus of the young generation; therefore it was great to watch this event and the enthusiasm for dance sport of all five pairs.
