Sherwin Santagio, SLU Dance troupe's trainer and choreographer was so thrilled to represent the country and share the culture and unique identity of the Cordillera during the art festival on May 23-26 in South Korea.

"We are so delighted to be chosen to represent Philippines, because it is not only a chance of representing the country but a chance to share the culture of the Philippines especially the unique identity of the Cordillera" Santiago said in an interview with Good News Pilipinas.

The SLU dance troupe represented the Philippines in the World Folk Arts  along with other dancers from other countries like China, Japan, Mongolia, Russia, South Korea, Turkey and Uzbekistan.

Despite having less than a month of preparation,  they represented their country and their Igorot tribe with pride as they danced with grace like they always do.

All members of the dance troupe are grateful to everyone who supported them making their recent shows in South Korea a success.
