CTHM dominates Salinggawi dance tilt


THE COLLEGE of Tourism and Hospitality Management’s (CTHM) official dance troupe reigned supreme in a University-wide dance competition last Nov. 14, notching podium finishes in all three categories.

CTHM Intenzyc emerged as champions in the solo and duo-trio categories, bagging four medals in the Dancescene competition.

Jan Dayaon of CTHM won first place in the solo category, after a performance that depicted a grieving lover in swift but melancholic choreography.

Princess Flores, also of Intenzyc, placed second while Emma Rosales of Paci Rhutmos Dance Troupe, the UST-Alfredo M. Velayo College of Accountancy’s dance troupe, finished third.

Flores interpreted a runaway bride in her performance while Rosales rendered an unconventional dance as she moved to the beat of slam poetry.

In the duo-trio category, Intenzyc’s Jed Alamon and John Manalang clinched the top spot with a dance depicting the struggles of a same-sex relationship.

Dancers Airon Cruz, Johnny Gabriel and Bradd Maesa of the College of Fine Arts and Design’s One Shade Dance Troupe settled for second place while CTHM Intenzyc’s Flores and Kryztyn Dupet placed third.

The UST Arki Dance Troupe was named champion in the group dance category, conquering the stage with a routine dedicated to the children affected by the violence in Syria.

“The purpose of our dance is to raise awareness about the issues affecting humanity especially in Syria,” Arki Dance Troupe member May Cuntapay told the Varsitarian.

Intenzyc placed second while Paci Rhutmos ranked third.

The annual dance competition Dancescene, organized yearly by the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, marked its 31st year.
