FACO CULTURAL DANCE GROUP

The FACO CULTURAL DANCE GROUP is composed of members and volunteers of the Filipino-American Cultural Organization (FACO). In pursuit of one of the association's missions in promoting the Philippine culture, the members and volunteers volunteered their time and talent to act as ambassadors of the association and help the organization raise funds for its projects like college scholarships, supporting public libraries, senior centers and fellow Filipinos who need help in the Philippines. They believe that through their dance, they can spread goodwill to the community and be instrumental to the good causes of this association.

The selected FACO Cultural Dancers will perform the Philippine folk dance "Salakot" interwoven with flare of zumba and modern dance. Salakot is the Filipino word for a wide-brimmed hat used by farmers and ladies to protect them from the heat of the sun. This time, it will be used with sexy and catchy moves to the delight of the audience.
