- Ensemble : UST SALINGGAWI DANCE TROUPE
- City : MANILA
The name Salinggawi is derived from the words “Gawi and Salinng mga”, which means the transfer of tradition and customs in English. The ensemble was founded in 1968 by Ermita E. Basilio. The group of scholarship students under the Institute of Physical Education and Athletics (IPEA) explored different dance styles according to the needs and demands of the university. Becoming more popular with the UAAP Cheerdance Competition they participated in, the ensemble has been divided two as Salinggawi Cheer and Salinggawi Dance to master both fields. In this way, “Salinggawi Dance” was able to focus on folk dance.
