Salindayaw: A Music and Dance Workshop Lab for the Children in UP Diliman’s Old Stud Farm


Salindayaw, a one day music and dance workshop lab for children, will be held in UP Diliman’s Old Stud Farm along C. P. Garcia on May 11 (Monday) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Salindayaw, a word play on “saliw” (harmony) and “indayog” (rhythm), is a project by the Broadcast Communication 197 (Events Management) students of the UP College of Mass Communication (CMC) that aims to develop a sense of appreciation for the performing arts as a mode of expression among children in public schools.

With the current orientation of education in the country that favors hard sciences over the liberal arts, the CMC students thought of launching this event to serve as tinder for an advocacy promoting a sense of importance to the arts.

Various arts-oriented and performing organizations, namely Sanghabi and the UP Underground Music Community, will help facilitate the event, specifically in coaching the children in the music and dance workshop.

The goal of the music workshop is to let children feel a harmonious environment while they collaborate in making sounds, melodies, and rhythms using a set of different instruments. The dance workshop on the other hand aims to do the same but focusing more on using movement as a mode of expression.

Everyone is invited to watch the open recitals of the children at 3 p.
