OktoberDANCEfest 2008

October 22, 2008 - (Left Photo) Pres. Danny Ricohermoso and Atty. James Balmas with the RCBM Dance group right after the Dance exhibition. Evident in their faces is the fun and excitement they had. (Top left) President Danny Ricohermoso with the RCBM Dancers during a rehearsal. Pres. Dan visited rehearsals at the Street Angelsí Haven Shelter for Children in Consuelo st., Malate, Manila, to encourage and assure the RCBM dancers to enjoy the competition rather than stress them with the thought of simply winning. Itís the fun and camaraderie that is more important he stressed to the youth. (Middle Photo) Hataw na!!!  The RCBM Dance group during their performance at the OctoberDANCEfestí08. The troupe didnít win the top three awards but in our books they are winners. Composed mainly of street kids, several of them are working as pedicab drivers along the Taft Avenue-Estrada street route and some are living in the Street Angelsí Haven Shelter and busy working their way to finish schooling they all took time out to hone their dancing talents and show their moves in the dance fest.
