Many thanks to Betty Romero of Lifeline Foundation for inviting me to join the Dance for Life, a four-hour dance marathon held on November 22 at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila. If not for the invite, l wouldn’t have known that she knew my friend Ruth from way back.
The warm up dance was led by no other than the Police Zumba Group. Then it was followed by the playing of non-stop versatile vintage sound with all the staple grooves of the 60s and 70s jams, urban beats of the 80s and 90s including a taste of hip hop dance led by a Zumba instructor.
I could have danced, danced, danced up to the end of the dance marathon, but Ruth’s baby Solenne was tired already so we decided to cut short our dance participation and capped it with a dinner at Harbor View.
The dance marathon was well attended and very well received by a large group of participants. Given the success of this event, l wouldn’t be surprised if there would be a repeat next year. Congratulations Lifeline Foundation and to all dance participants for a job well done! Here’s Lifeline Foundation’s Dance Unite Post Event Release-final report.
