The event dubbed as BM-NCCA INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY FESTIVAL 2015 is in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Manila Broadcasting Company, Aliw Theater, Star City, and dance school and companies across the country. It is also recognized as the official NCCAYugyugan para sa Kultura ng Bayan in the National Capital Region.
“The idea of celebrating IDD in Aliw Theater came to mind in January this year with mostly ballet schools as performers but the response was overwhelming and the program has now become multi-disciplinary,” says Lisa Macuja Elizalde, BM Artistic Director.
The festival features a whole day of performances from ballet, hip-hop, modern, contemporary, and folk dance schools and companies from Metro Manila, Cavite, Pampanga and Baguio City. Food booths and photo wall activities are also available at the Elizalde Hall. The event culminates in a gala featuring special performances from AirDance, Bayanihan National Folk Dance, Daloy Dance Company, Philippine Ballet Theater, Polecats Manila, Korean Cultural Center, Manouevers, and Ballet Manila.
