Thinking that some of the regional groups would perform officially today, I went to the Aliwan Festival Grounds at the CCP complex. Too bad every magical thing will be done tomorrow. Yet some of the troups shared a sampling of what can be anticipated on the final day. I saw contingents from University of Cordillera, Carmen (Cebu), and the grand winner for the Kasadyahan Competition of the Dinagyang Festival of Iloilo rehearsed their blockings for the street dancing competition. Yes, the pulsating percussion rhythm, the complex choreography and the ornate production design just whetted my appetite for more. Tomorrow, rain or shine, I shall be there.
