I'm turning 26 this month and here is my ultimate birthday wish: Support a Filipino Folk Dance program in Stockton, CA by donating $1 or $10 for each year I've been alive.
The Little Manila Foundation is breaking ground on a professional dance space that will be utilized to teach proper and authentic dance techniques, artistry, and cultural responsibility to a new generation of Filipino-American youth (ages 5-25) in the city of Stockton.
A $26 or $260 donation will go towards purchasing the initial studio supplies such as:
- 2 6'X8' studio myl mirrors ($1600)
- Folk dance props and costumes ($1400)
- Honorarium fund to invite Folk and Indigenous Dance Masters to teach students proper dance technique and history ($2000)
Your donation will make an absolute difference in the visibility and cultural empowerment of youth in Stockton. Help sustain a Filipino youth folk dance presence in Little Manila by donating today!
