Intense performances, deep colors, and high-style theatrics fill the stage at Filipino folk dance performance Pasasalamat: Giving Thanks. The show is Likha Pilipino Dance Ensemble's 15th annual production, and encompasses 80 dancers, costumes galore, and traditional dance styles like Lumad, mountain, and Maria Clara. The ensemble's organizers believe dance is a good tool for education and enlightenment for the general public and for the Filipino community as well as a lot of fun. Likha's longevity means they're right; it also means they put on a good show.
