#IAmADancer

In 2016, we launched the #IAmADancer campaign featuring dancers from various levels, baby ballet students to professionals. The stunning photographs show the effortless beauty of dancers’ movements. But with each pose is a story of discipline; of countless hours in the studio, honing the mind and body, always striving for perfection.

Our vision is to showcase homegrown talent, reach new audiences, promote the arts, and ultimately, to inspire our young artists to pursue their dance dreams.

Following the success of the first batch, this time we are featuring a new batch of dancers. In the coming weeks, you will get to know each dancer better. See more stunning pictures. Learn about their thoughts and feelings as well as stories of performance jitters and bloopers.

We also invite you to join this campaign and post your own pictures or videos of a perfect dance moment captured on camera. Share with us your thoughts about dance, why you love to dance, what it has taught you, your struggles and how you overcame the challenges. Let us know your moments of glory, friendships made, or perhaps your love story. Show the world what dancers are made of. Post your pictures on Facebook or Instagram, don’t forget to tag us @thatsdpointe and use the hashtags #IAmADancer and #danceisthatsdpointe. We are always on a lookout for dancers who inspire for our succeeding campaigns.

Thank you to the beautiful and talented dancers who participated in this endeavor: AL Frederick Abraham, Veronica Atienza, Garry Corpuz, Pia Angela Custodio, Matthew Davo, Monica Gana, Crimson Guirjem, Michelle Kawpeng, Samantha Lacsamana, Jemima Reyes, Mikaela Samson, Natalia Tordesillas, Cameron Wang, and Cyrene Wang; and to the schools and companies who hone these dancers into perfection: ACTS Manila, Ballet Philippines, Danspace Ballet School, Elan Ballet and Pilates, Halili Cruz School of Ballet, Philippine Ballet Theatre, REDph, and UP Dance Company.

And to Stanley Ong, the person behind the lens who captured these moments to perfection, you truly have a wonderful gift. Thank you.

It’s Summer, Let’s Dance! (Part 1)

Summer is here again! Have you decided what to do other than bask under the glorious sun on a beach somewhere? How about take a dance workshop? Perhaps learn a different discipline? Who knows, you might just discover a new genre to fall in love with.

Here are a few suggestions on what classes you may be interested in:

Classical Ballet – The basic. Almost every little girl dreams of being a ballerina. Soft and delicate yet with the strength and discipline that is at par with the greatest athletes. Ballet is an overall workout of the body, mind, and soul.

Jazz – Modern and hip. Glide through the floor, cut through the air with those kicks and turns set to upbeat music. Develop strong bodies through drills and floor movements.

Tap – Rhythm and sound. Enjoy dancing as your feet makes wonderful sounds that complement the music. Nothing but happiness when you hear those tapping beats.

Hiphop/Street – Freeform. Dance to the top music on the Billboard list and move your body in amazing ways. Lose and creative but definitely high on the fun scale.

Contemporary/Modern – Expression. Make new wonderful shapes with your body. Explore different themes, from the mundane to the profound, and create movement. Appreciate the human form and its capabilities through dance.

Bellydance – Sensual and empowering. Isolation and fluid movements of oriental dance makes oriental music come alive. Learn about the rich middle-eastern culture and experience it through dance.

Flamenco – Fiery. The dance of Spain is all about passion and expression. The strong feet and fluid hands express the body’s emotion like never before. The syncopated rhythms and music complete the dance. It’s a complete experience.

Ballroom – Elegance with an attitude. Whether you go for the sultry Latin or the elegant Standard dance, you will be a show stopper. So pick your partner and dance away.

Pole/Aerial Arts –  Strong is the new sexy. A true workout as evidenced by the toned body of the teachers. Defy gravity as you challenge your strength and flexibility. Be amazed at what your body is capable of. Embrace power.

Hula – Island traditions. Sway and dance to the beats of the islands. It’s not as easy as it looks. Experience Hawaii through movement, music, colorful sarongs, and flowers.
