Migrating Old posts from my Danceblog that was previously hosted on Multiply :)

This used to be the header of my Dance Blog hosted at Multiply for many years now. We bid adieu to Multiply's social media side and so (with the burden of re-editing and fixing my old blog posts) here's my "Just Dance" blog. Relocated, revamped and alive again. Still it was a nice trip down memory lane.
I'm more of a dance enthusiast now. I believe Dancers are those who constantly practice to hone their skills. I've not actively danced in a while. Bit rusty, and while I do miss it terribly, I'm just as happy to be surrounded by the positive energy I get from dancers and the dancing community. Spread the positive energy vibe.

I've also been blessed to have had the opportunity to be a contributor/blogger for the now defunct , and help spread the word and awareness for dancers here, and in my surrounding region. 

Dance Manila's website has since closed down in October 2015. But you can still follow them on their Facebook page, just look for Dance Manila.

Was once the trainer/choreographer for USC-CAFA Pop Jazz Team (Cebu). Danced professionally for local TV Shows, and Events. Have now concentrated on other creative endeavors, such as dance prods/concepts along with my creative team -  Razor Edge Dance Prod. Occasionally we accept dancing gigs. So drop us a line :)



Thank You Dance Manila

In October, one of the website/blog I have been regularly contributing to has finally announced its end. bids adieu to the community and its readers. Though as they said to their avid followers, it was never about just a website / blog, but about the community that came together and connected through Dance Manila. With the booming dance community in all parts of the country, their purpose has been achieved.

Their post on their FB page:
Long time everyone! As the saying goes "All good thing (must) come to an end." Dance Manila is officially shutting down....
