Ballet Philippines will present Masterworks in a live performance on February 2, 2010 at 6PM at the Cinema One of SM City Bacolod. Founded in 1969 by Alice Reyes with the support of Eddie Elejar and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Ballet Philippines (BP) is widely recognized today as a cornerstone of the Filipino cultural identity. 

Its audience represents a cross-section of Manila’s populace and includes visitors from around the country and around the world. Each year outreach and educational programs introduce new generations of audience members not only to dance, but to music and visual art as well. BP’s official school, the CCP Dance School, continues to produce dancers of international caliber. As the resident dance company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Ballet Philippines is globally recognized as the flagship company in ballet and contemporary dance.

With a treasure trove of over 400 works, Ballet Philippines’ wide ranging, eclectic repertory is unparalleled in Asia. From full-length classical ballets and internationally recognized masterworks to indigenous works of Filipino folklore and social issues, the company weaves a colorful tapestry of the Philippine’s rich and diverse cultural heritage – uniquely and distinctly Filipino.


The Company's achievements, coupled with the generous and prestigious support of numerous local and national funding sources, have dramatically strengthened BP’s position as a world-class ballet company within the local, national, and international arts communities. Ballet Philippines looks forward to a future that pays tribute to its past.
