Witness a lavish display of Filipino culture, BAYANIHAN THE PHILIPPINE NATIONAL FOLK DANCE COMPANY celebrates the sumptuous music and diverse dance traditions of the Philippines. More than 45 young and dynamic performers, including singers, dancers, and musicians, embody all the charm and grace of the nation of 7,000 islands.
