A yearly tradition of the Philippine Performing Arts of Greater Pittsburgh dance troupe is to put on dance recitals showcasing the dances of the Philippines that otherwise would not be seen when the group is invited to dance at events in the Pittsburgh community. The group uses the recital to further expose the Filipino culture to a large audience.
The dance group has performed at many events, apart from the annual recital, to promote the Filipino culture including:
Weirton, VA: Festival of Nations
Pittsburgh Bicentennial Parade
Cranberry, PA: American Cancer Society Relay for Life event
Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) – Pittsburgh Chapter Lunar New Year Banquet and Fundraiser
Mustin Chiropractic Clinic Health Festival
Moraine State Park’s Regatta at Lake Arthur
Mars, PA: Apple Festival
Cranberry, PA: Community Days
Cathedral of Learning: Holiday Open House
Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium: Asian Lantern Festival
THIS SHOW IS OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT!
PAPAGP's 10th Anniversary Recital

To commemorate the occasion, this year’s annual recital will be unique and special. Aptly titled “ALAALA” (Memories), it will feature our best loved dances over the years. These dances portray indigenous and foreign influences on Filipino dance and music, from pre-Spanish to modern times. Bring your friends and family, join us at "ALAALA".
