Thrill to the magic of this world-famous troupe of talented dancers who perform authentic folk dances from their native country of the Philippines. Audiences around the world have been entertained and enchanted by the beautiful performances of the Bayanihan Philippine National Dance Company. The stage magically comes to life with intricate dances, colorful traditional costumes, and lively music as they share the rich diversity of Filipino culture with its Chinese, Spanish, and Middle Eastern influences. Named the country’s official dance company, this esteemed ensemble was formed 50 years ago to preserve the artistic traditions of Filipino dance, music, and costume. Praised by The Washington Post for its “flawless deportment” and for looking “as pretty and gracious as ever,” this delightful ensemble gives a performance the whole family will enjoy!
