Tinikling Dance Performance

This performance is going to be an important part of our 2022 Parish Feast Day Fiesta & Celebrations!! Tinikling is a traditional Philippine/Filipino folk dance whose name refers to a bird that is known in the Philippines as Tikling. Mimicking the bird’s movements, this dance is characterized by the movements of one or more dancers between two bamboo poles while these are beaten in a certain rhythm against each other and onto the ground.

Our teens were amazing, right from attending practice on time, to watching the videos, setting up the practice area and finally to the actual dance rehearsals. We are also grateful to Mrs. Marlene Delledera who spent her morning and afternoon leading this practice. Thank you again for all your enthusiasm and support!!

If you or your teen has not yet signed up/ volunteered for our Feast Day celebrations, there is still time to do so. A sign-up table is set up in the commons. Sign up because there is something for everyone!!

If you’ve been paying attention during all these weeks of Easter, you know that Jesus, after He was raised from the dead, was somehow different.  (more…)
