I am excited to watch Ballet Manila 2.0 as it presents a medley of classical favorites and original Filipino ballets plus the world premiere of Bloom, Belgian-Colombian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s first work for an Asian dance company.

It is not a secret that most of Ballet Manila’s alumni are making waves internationally, thus BM 2.0 also showcases the guest appearance of BM alumna Christine Rocas who is guesting together with Joffrey Ballet colleague Rory Hohenstein. They will perform the Balcony Scene in Krzysztof Pastor’s Romeo & Juliet and Christopher Wheeldon’s After The Rain.

Pursuant to Ballet Manila’s mission of bringing ballet to the people through OPM (Original Pilipino Music)/ Pinoy choreography, the artists of BM 2.0 will dance to the tune of Tara Let’s. This colorful piece was originally choreographed by BM principal artist Gerardo Francisco for the 2014 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference.

Unlike those who don't know how to appreciate the Albayanos' (natives of Albay) hospitality, I am here to promote Albay. 

Naturally I am a bit biased because I grew up in Albay but the natural beauty of the place speaks a lot for itself. And it is not only Mayon Volcano that is majestic in Albay. There are also a lot of fascinating places to see, people to meet, food to taste, souvenirs to buy and things to do in the lovely province of Albay. 

Your visit to Albay will not be complete if you don't visit some of these exciting places and experience the thrills of the following:

Cagsawa Ruins are remnants of the old Franciscan church built in 1724 but destroyed by the eruption of Mayon Volcano in 1814. The Ruins are located in Barangay Busay in the municipality of Daraga, Albay, just about 3 kilometers from Legazpi Airport.

The baroque church was built in the then small town of Cagsawa. After the 1814 eruption that buried the town of Cagsawa, survivors resettled into the nearby Daraga, which was then a barrio (barangay) of the destroyed town of Cagsawa. Later, Cagsawa was merged with barrio Daraga to form the town of Daraga.
