Cultural

FCA performs both traditional Filipino and modern dances at various locales for various events, such as the FACES Fashion Show, the District VI Semi-Formal, and the Philippine Culture Night Show. The Filipino Cultural Association has been honored to have Don Verde choreograph the cultural dances.

Are you a UMCP student that would like to join any of our various dance groups? Attend our general body meetings or e-mail members of the executive board for more information. There are no cuts, but you gotta come to practice.

Modern Dance

FCA has an amazing modern dance group. This dance group branches from multiple styles of dance including hip hop, breakdance, contemporary, etc. This dance group is open to anyone willing to learn dance or already knows how to dance and enjoys it. There will be several workshops throughout the year to help foster the dance inside of everyone. Modern also performs for several events including District 6 Semi and the Philippine Culture Night.

Are you a lover of dance or would like to try it out? For more information, hit up the modern directors or attend the general body meetings.

FCA athletics are a fun way for members of FCA to bond with each other, as well as with other organizations. FCA offers a wide variety of sports.
