The AlunAlun Dance Circle and the Japan Foundation Manila Office in partnership with Marikina City and NCCA and UNESCO Philippines invites you to the International Conference on the Conservation and Popularization of Pangalay and Related Asian Dance Cultures.
Your participation is important to make this first intellectual exchange conference on the conservation of traditional Filipino dance and other Asian dances a success.
Pangalay is a dance style from Southern Philippines that bears closest affinity to other classical dance forms in Southeast Asia. The conference will discuss issues like:
- Dance Conservation and the Migration of Traditional Dance Forms across Regional, National / and/or International Boundaries;
- Traditional / Classical Asian Dance Forms: Hybridization, Reconceptualization or Innovation;
- Global Prospect for Borrowing and Collaboration:
- Exchange, Change and Circulation (or Popularization) [Note: registration fees of official participants from Marikina City will be subsidized ]
We await your response at the following:

Through the recognition and appreciation of our kinship witnessed by dance throughout Southeast Asia, not only do we progress towards excellence in our respective fields of dance and culture, but also we affirm the links established by our ancestors and resolve to live in mutual understanding and peace.
