Dance for H.E.L.P.

Dance for H.E.L.P. thumbnail

By Melvin Laureano

During calamities and hard times, many Filipinos show their unity and great compassion to their fellowmen. It is one of the good Filipino traits that everyone should be proud of. After the consecutive and devastating typhoons, solidarity emerged from the two big rivaling television stations in the Philippines, the rich and the poor, and to all the Filipinos around the world.

Here in Calgary, two young ladies have done a unique way of helping the typhoon victims in the Philippines; Cherry Tumolva and Vanessa Padillo. It is remarkable how these young women conceptualized a fundraising project through culture and the arts. The DANCE FOR H.E.L.P (Hope, Economy, Life, Philippines) was held on November 7, 2009 at Albert Park Radisson Heights Community Hall. It was a dance workshop presented by the Canadian Red Cross, Kapatiran Dance Group and Common Ground Dance with the help of Pinoy Times, Alchemist Studios, Involuntary Movement and NRG Marketing Group. In four hours, participants of this event had the chance to dance up to four styles. The first class was Break Dancing and it was instructed by Gomo followed by a cultural/traditional dance called Tinikling by Cherry Tumolva, the Hip-Hop Dance by Albert “Styles” Mejia and the Contemporary Dance by Vanessa “VaVoom” Padillo. Every class costs $10 and $35 for the four classes. 100% of the proceeds were used by the Canadian Red Cross to help the typhoon victims in the Philippines.
