American Contemporary Ballet Company to Visit Manila and Iloilo

American contemporary ballet company Trey McIntyre Project will conduct master classes in ballet, modern dance and technical direction in Manila and Iloilo City during a ten-day visit to the Philippines.

The group will perform on May 10 at Central Philippine University, Iloilo City and on May 12 Market! Market! Mall, Taguig City.  Both performances are free and open to the public.

The group will work collaboratively with the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Dance Group.  McIntyre is a sought-after choreographer with a body of more than 90 works.  He had choreographed for American Ballet Theatre, Stuttgart Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, New York City Ballet and Ballet Santiago, among others.  

He founded Trey McIntyre Project in 2008 and has since focused on creating "works that explore the human experience in transformative and captivating ways."

TMP's visit to the Philippines is part of DanceMotion USA, a program aimed at sharing the rich dance culture of the United States with international audiences. The program is under the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and produced by the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

In the Philippines, the DanceMotion USA program is under the auspices of the US Embassy Manila and the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
