Calling all dancers and production specialists!

Kababayang Pilipino is excited to announce that we will be returning to the dance studio THIS SPRING as we prepare for our upcoming performance in November, 2022.

The Dance Centre has been KP’s rehearsal home for over 2 decades, and we are very fortunate to be returning to this facility shared by a diverse dance community. 

As the Creative Cohort, led by our very own Marc Arboleda, shapes the artistic season, we are excited for our dance members to participate in the performance and development of the dance pieces. We welcome dancers and performers from all backgrounds. No formal dance training is necessary; however, a keen interest in dance-performance would be beneficial. We encourage applications to be submitted by April 10th, 2022.
