It’s baaaackkk!! I’m not sure if you heard of it, but 2 years ago, an enormously successful and fun Dance 4 Life was held at Venice Piazza, Mckinley Hill. It was the talk of the town as it wasn’t something we normally have here in Manila. A lot of people have been asking when another Dance Marathon like this will come by and your prayers have been heard! Back by popular demand, Dance United will be happening this November 22, 9pm at Quirino Grandstand! The goal is to raise funds for the rebuilding of Yolanda stricken areas through a 4-hour dance marathon.

Last Nov. 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) made landfall made landfall in Visayas bringing about chaos and devastation in several areas. People did not just suffer the loss of their homes and properties, but of families, friends and loved ones as well. It was a very gloomy time not just for those affected, but for everyone who witnessed its effects. However, there was one thing Yolanda didn’t take from the Filipino people, and it was their undying spirit. The Filipino spirit has and always will remain strong and our faith in tact. The Filipino has refused to stay down, but with the help of others all over the world, has begun not just to build, but build back in new and better ways. Dance Unite is just one of the many ways we are uplifting the Filipino spirit once again!
