Rehearsing w/ ACTS Manila

Last night, I had the privilege of joining ACTS Manila in the rehearsals for their annual recital at the CCP on May 26, 2010. (ACTS Manila is pre-professional ballet company for ACTS Manila Ballet schools under Chelo Borromeo-Gemina. ) They were rehearsing a singkil inspired Ballet number. Since their lone danseur, Melvin dela Cruz, was choreographing this number, I was asked to do the part of the prince. It was quite exciting to traverse imaginary bamboo clappers as I've done in the past. I consider dancing like these one of the top fat burners anyone can ever experience
