Sinulog sa Kabataan Street Dance | Sinulog 2015

A week before the Sinulog Grand parade, Cebu is already upbeat. People can see a preview of the lively, colorful and grand celebration that happens in the Queen City of the South. The Sinulog sa Kabataan serves as an elimination event for Cebu-based contingents where winners will get the slots for the Grand Sinulog competition.

I was able to catch some of the action in the streets. Personally I enjoy it more because you can get really close and personal to them so I did not bother going to the main dancing stage. ย (for the lack of a zoom lens ๐Ÿ˜€ )

The Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan (Province) happens on a Saturday afternoon which starts with a parade and street dance from the Capitol to the Cebu City Sports Center (Abellana) where they perform the ritual dance showdown in a big stage. This is participated by cities and municipalities from within the province of Cebu.

I appreciate all the effort that has been shown in this event. They all deserve our cheers and applause. Winning this competition needs a lot of factor to consider. Aside from those criteria for judging, I personally say they need a PUFF. (i just made it up ๐Ÿ˜€ )

It means:

Passion
