Garcia-Sanchez School of Dance Bacolod guest dance teacher
A total of 36 junior and senior students of premier Bacolod dance school at 17th-Lacson Street, Garcia-Sanchez School of Dance, were treated to a dance workshop by Filipino-American dancer Kenneth San Jose.
Young and dynamic Filipino-American dancer Kenneth San Jose visits Bacolod City and gives a workshop to the students of the Garcia-Sanchez School of Dance last January 21, 2018.
San Jose has open dance workshops in Manila, Cebu, and Davao, but since he is related to the Locsin family of Bacolod, he more than happily agreed to to swing by to the City of Smiles and give a private workshop to the junior and senior dance students of the Bacolod dance school.
Kenneth’s grandmother is Carmen D. Locsin, the owner of the oldest running dance school in the Philippines, which is now on it’s 71st year. She is the wife of Jose Locsin, the brother of Mrs. Medy Locsin Garcia, and who is the mother and grandmother of the ladies of the Garcia-Sanchez School of Dance.
Bacolod Dance Workshop
The Bacolod dance workshop by San Jose last January 21 was an hour and a half, which was followed by an exclusive meet and greet with the 36 participants.
That same afternoon, San Jose had another public meet and greet session with his followers in Bacolod, held at the SM City Bacolod. He performed one song and another dance number with the Bacolod workshop participants.
San Jose personally thanked his family at the Garcia-Sanchez School of Dance for such a wonderful workshop turnout. He said that the students learned his routine in 45 mins when it usually takes about 1.5 hours to complete. With the time left, he divided the students to smaller groups so as to see the dancers better.
He related that he really learned so much from the Bacolod dance workshop as a dancer because the students were so good and so quick to learnd. He had a chance to perform for them and with them and he said that he really needed that kind of experience. As he taught them, he was also very inspired by their zest to learn and not just to have photos taken with him.
With the acceptance and appreciation of the Bacolod dance school, San Jose said that he could not wait to come back to Bacolod.
