Summer approaches and with it, the Acts Manila Recital: Beauty from Ashes. The rush to finish and clean choreography intensifies each day. All these on top of the rush of new students wanting to try out Ballet for the summer. These are the challenges and rewards of a life dedicated to serve God through the arts. (Thankfully, I don’t need any term life insurance yet). At the end of the day, fulfillment comes when you see your contribution into the life of a person as a dancer and as a follower of God. It is indeed a joy to one day see the little cygnets in the studio transform into beautiful swans.

In the last few weeks, I spent a lot of time installing the floors of my Ballet studio in Laguna Belair. The challenge really was to find the right materials for the floor installation I had in mind. Will I use 1/2 “or 3/4” plywood? How much foam do I need? Do I need a dowel pin? Should I use linoleum or vinyl? Once these questions were answered, installation was pretty much straight forward. I still had to sweat a lot but it sure was like clock work. At least, I now have good floors so my students can do pointe work.
My Ballet classes are every Mon and Wed 4:30 onwards at the 21st -22nd Bldg, Rodeo Drive, Laguna Belair 2, Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I can be reached at 09083020319 or 09228108396. Do check out www.actsmanila.com
Acts Manila goes onstage @ the CCP Main Theatre this May 2012 with 13 participating schools. Check out the ongoing rehearsals and preparations for this annual event in the video below – a sneak peek of what to expect.
This year’s theme is taken from Isaiah 61:3.
and provide for those who grieve in Zion–to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

This is my first attempt at video and I shot the footage with guess what?…. a simple point and shoot cam. 🙂 Bring out the black ties, the custom lapel pins and the red carpet! hahaha nah I still have a lot to learn but this was really fun to do. I can’t wait to do more.
