Rean here…

 

Now that the Acts Manila recital is over, adrenaline gone, I now feel the fatigue accumulated over the last few days. Makes me want to check out Daybeds.com for a day bed mattress.  While the recital required a lot of energy, it was indeed rewarding to see students perform after a year’s hard work.  Congratulations to all the children and parents who were part of the 2012 Acts Manila Recital: Beauty from Ashes.

The past few days have been very busy…Acts Manila and its affiliate schools performed for 2 nights at the Main Theatre of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The Company performed Paquita one of the most demanding ballets of all time.  Rehearsals were intense as the dancers’ bodies were pushed to their limits.  (Makes you think about basement flooring options that are kinder to your dancer’s feet and legs).  Thankfully they had a great performance with no serious injuries.  Soli Dei Gloria!

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 ballet schools (www.actsmanila.com) are gearing up for our recital on May 25 at the CCP main theatre.  Directors and Teachers are working on choreographies while managing the payment of fees. We are also working on upcoming pictorials and school year culminating activities of our schools.   Sensa reviews are irrelevant at this point as the flurry of activities keep us in tip top shape.   Thankfully my 1st choreography for my Sta.Rosa, Binan and San Pedro schools are almost  done.  Now gearing up for pictorials this weekend.

Ever since I became a Christian, I had the desire to use my body to honor God through movement.  Even as I child, there was an inner beat within me that would surface in my movement as music was played.   As I came into the prophetic season of my life, the reality of God restoring the “fallen tent of David” came to prominence in my devotions.   In 1992, I had to opportunity to train under Chelo Borromeo Gemina and Chotto Borromeo Go for classical ballet.  These ladies also had a heart to use ballet to reach the world for Christ so I followed their lead.   While this art may be one the best fat burners, I was in it for the vision.   A couple of years later I quit ballet to pursue a career in industry.   I never dreamed that 15 years later, God would bring be back to ballet to teach kids this craft I love as well as disciple them to be lovers of God.  I am now an Artistic Associate for Chelo Borromeo Gemina’s Acts Manila.  You’ll find me teaching ballet at Laguna Bel Air 2, Alpha Angelicum School in Binan and Jesus the Risen Savior School San Pedro, all in Laguna.
