On Sunday June 28 the Filipino cultural performing arts group, Kababayang Pilipino, will present their 22nd anniversary show, IPASA (to pass on) in New Westminster at The Massey Theatre. I've known this group of people for a long time, some since high school, and they have supported my photography career since I first decided to go into the business. When they asked me again to photograph their show I couldn't help but BE excited!
I had the opportunity to visit the group at their rehearsal space in The Scotia Dance Centre located in Downtown Vancouver for some candid shots of their practice.
The young kids were full of energy in the bright studio. Props to the KP teachers having the patience and the focus going through the numbers as crews of 4 & 5 yr olds run circles around them.
This being my 4th year photographing the group it's also wonderful to witness the KP kids grow up before my very own eyes.
