The music used in our performances are authentic pieces taken from the rich musical heritage of the Philippines. From the harmonic chimes of the Kulingtang to the sentimental unison of the Banduria ensemble, music plays a major role in the foundation of our performances.
With each story, the characters must dress the part. Our beautifully hand crafted costumes are designed with intricate detail to make sure our performers stand proud on the stage.
The movements of each dance tell the story. Our choreographed pieces stretch the imagination with precise steps, fun and playful movements, and audience pleasing entertainment.
