"Shake That Groove Thing" Filipino-style

video

Ibaan celebrated it's 180th Founding Day with a week long celebration. One evening was DepEd night where public and private schools participated in the celebration. We enjoyed superb traditional Filipino folk dancing and our group of teachers was assigned the theme of 1960's music. I was the only one who was actually alive in the 60's! What an experience, exhausting practices, great bonding among teachers, lots of laughs and my first time wearing false eyelashes! The town mayor and superintendent of education watched us along with many other officials and guests. I hope you enjoy, words could not express what this video captures!! Being a Peace Corps volunteer requires you to be flexible, I hope this counts!!!
