It included activities like artists forum, dance workshops conducted by dance directors from participating countries, masters classes, festival of dance performances, major concerts and cultural tours that showcased the best of Puerto Princesa City.

Tesoro added that the Sarayawan Dance Company of Colegio dela Purisima Concepcion (CPC) and Silak Dance Company of Filamer Christian University (FCU) performed for the SCPA on the recently concluded Dance Xchange.

Tesoro is also the founder and consultant of SCPA since its organization in 2008 as an offshoot of the 1st Capiz Dance Season dubbed “Saot Capiz” in 2007.
