The 2016 Sayaw Pinoy aims to promote artistic excellence in the different dance forms in the spirit of friendly competition.
The National Committee on Dance of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts under the leadership of Josefina B. Guillen has organized the 2016 Sayaw Pinoy: The NCCA National Dance Competition as part of its efforts to promote dance in its various forms. It aims to promote artistic excellence in the different dance forms in the spirit of friendly competition. This year, the competition is on FOLK DANCE, CONTEMPORARY, and HIP HOP.
The program also aims to stress the importance of the competition as it raises the artists' consciousness on the value of artistic excellence. It provides opportunities for artists to exploit and maximize their true potential. It also hopes to develop emotional fitness through teamwork as the group experience will bring about dependability, responsibility, commitment, sportsmanship, discipline, creativity and awareness of the value of the art of dance, consequently, acquiring the value of working together as a team towards common goals which will extend to daily undertakings beyond the competition.
The competition will be held on December 1-3, 2016 in Koronadal City, South Cotabato.
