The Philippine Ballet Theatre held a series of performances over the weekend, as part of National Heritage Month.

Titled “Hiyas sa Sayaw,” the ballet dancers performed neo-classical dance pieces inspired by the traditional icons and dances of Mindanao and Mountain Province such as The Vinta, Ibalon, and Sarimanok at the Talisay City Public Plaza on May 24, Bacolod City Government Center on May 25, and the Don Alejandro Acuna Yap Quina Arts and Cultural Center in Victorias City on the 26th.

Founded in 1987, Philippine Ballet Theatre (PBT) has established itself as the pre-eminent classical ballet company in the Philippines today. It was borne out of an alliance of leading dance groups in the eighties but immediately won recognition as a resident ballet company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

Philippine Ballet Theatre has now expanded its vision and pursues the goal of bringing the upscale art of dance to general appreciation among Filipino audiences. With its concurrent preservation of the rich and elegant classical story ballets, such as Swan Lake, Giselle, Nutcracker, and Raymonda, PBT also launches contemporary ballets that are of emotional depth, dramatic realism and stark inventiveness like the critically acclaimed Carmina Burana and Daughters of Mourning (Bernarda Alba). Its repertoire continues to dazzle and amaze various audiences with its distinct and poetic delicacy and refined sophistication.

The company has traveled in national and international tours presenting the best of its Filipino and Western repertoire; highlighting the company’s commitment to artistic excellence in the classical, neo-classical and pop-classical traditions.*
