The Filipino Student Association at UCF was founded by Giselle Padrigone and Christine Castañeda. Each spring, FSA hosts an event that showcases the many cultural dances of the Philippines, including dance routines from both UCF students and famous performers. This year, the theme is “Cirque Du Sayaw”, and it will be held on March 26 in the Pegasus Ballroom beginning at 6 p.m. The event is free for all students.
FSA’s Sayaw event last year packed around 1,000 students into the Pegasus Ballroom, with a guest performance by D-Trix, a member of the dance crew “Quest Crew”, who appeared on shows such as America’s Best Dance Crew and So You Think You Can Dance?
Along with performances, the event consists of free food, games, raffles, and more. Many local businesses support and sponsor the event, and this year it is expected to be the largest one yet. The guest performers have yet to be released, but they are sure to attract a large crowd.
You can find more information about the event on FSA’s Facebook page.
