With the aim of honing the sportsmanship and dancing skills of ballroom dancers and enthusiasts alike, Oblation Dancesport 2018 has been organized by the UP Dancesport Society, or UP DSS, the official ballroom dancing organization of the University of the Philippines. Since its inception in the year 2005, it has showcased and highlighted the dancesport competitors swaying their way into the dance floor. What better way to do that to celebrate artistry and athleticism by joining us in this capstone event?

This February 24, ballroom dancers from all over the country will set the floor blazing with their competitive and lively performances. Competitors from both disciplines, Latin and Standard, are all welcome to hit the dancefloor. Oblation Dancesport 2018 will offer categories for rumba, chacha, jive, samba, and pasodoble of the Latin discipline and waltz, tango, quickstep, foxtrot, and the Viennese waltz of the Standard discipline. We have competitors from all ages, those in high school and college, and those below and beyond 45 years old both have events they could enter.

For enthusiasts, a dance congress is set up in the morning to engage individuals in the discipline of ballroom dancing.

The dance congress is open to all, no dance experience needed! It will offer Dancesport 101 lessons with the renowned dancing professional of the Dancesport Community and one of the pioneers of dancesport in the Philippines, Sir Alberto Dimarucut, and a leadership seminar from UP DSS alumni, Mr. Gian Yap.

In line with UP Diliman’s Arts Month, this year’s event is about artistry, athleticism, and adoration, not only to the sport but to the dancers as well.
