New Year’s Revolution: The Revolution Begins

“It was bitter work, but the results were worth it”

After almost 2 months in the planning, finally! the Revolution begins!

New Year’s Revolution is just a crazy idea to showcased the students of the University of the Cordilleras their talents, and skills in dancing through friendly competition. This began when UC FUEGO became an official organization to this school, and has been creating programs for the benefit of the students. In the creation of this event came the very challenging times or should I say the Dark Ages of the said organi13699950_1118332228224617_7966404072415063973_nzation.

This Organization together with IT Society and the University Student Council struggled in making this event possible with a short span of preparation, they made sure that this event will push through. With only limited resources and limited time, they managed to finish their work and produced an event that will revolutionize the traditions of every competition that was created inside the university.

According to the President of Fuego the creation of the event was so chaotic that they came to a point that they want to cancel the event due to many errors, starting with the projectors, down to the sounds. But they didn’t quit under pressure and still pursue on making this event possible in which it did. 13726758_1127537390599943_7638337217424582999_n

During the event the Presidents of the 3 organizations didn’t watched the program, instead they made sure that the flow of the program goes smoothly. Even made them run around behind the scenes of the program just to make sure that their in sync because during the program they made necessary changes to the flow just to make the program much more better. It was very tiring to them considering that there were so many technical difficulties that happened during the event, but in the end everything went well. After the event was done everybody was so happy to the extent that they forget how tired and stressed they are in producing this event. Everyone had a good time especially the audience and the competitors of the said competition.

Having 5 competitors the 7 judges picked the Best Performers of the competition namely; Jizelle Sumbad for the Female category and Othniel Dela Pena for the Male category. 

the Psychotics won 4t13686489_971351389630108_5075275696740560990_nh runner up, System Reboot as the 3rd runner up, Camaraderie of Groove as the 2nd runner, Ronin as the 1st runner, and Uptick as the New Year’s Revolution 2016 Champion. The event ended with happy faces and emotional moments, the 3 organizations plan to have a sequel to the event and make another Revolution.

Congratulations to all the winners and see you all again on the next Revolution.

New Year’s Revolution: Genesis (The Making)

I know it’s already June but there’s no such thing as an “old year”, not unless it is before 2016.

After almost 1 month of processing, finally it’s already on the go. This was just a CRAZY IDEA made for the students of the University of the Cordilleras, and was made real with the help of the USC and IT Society.

I’m so excited because finally my crazy idea will come to life, just like my 1st idea of creating a dance workshop for the students of UC. Now, the moment that I’ve been waiting for is coming fast. Hopefully everything will be alright and successful.

The date is set for the competitibegin_processon. On July 16, 2016, the 26th year anniversary of the biggest earthquake that hit Baguio City back in 1990. We will know who will start the Revolution in UC. A Revolution of it’s students, a change in culture, a change in attitude, and a change that will make UC be known for it’s extraordinary students with unique, and astonishing talents.

We still have a lot to take care of and hopefully everything will be fine. I believe that this event will be successful because of the hard work and dedication of my active members, USC, IT Society, and volunteers in order for this event to push through. We’re already around 60% in the process and I believe that it will be 150% during the event ( I hope so ).

Don’t be afraid of letting your ideas be heard, because you’ll never know the great impact of an idea once it is already been made. Creation came from an idea so don’t underestimate the power of the mind. Think of an idea now but create it tomorrow for the development of the future.

Dance for PASSION and not for fame

 

Dancing is an ART not a TOOL for fame.

If your purpose is to gain popularity through dancing then you’ll fail.

Dance for passion and not for fame is not just a statement, but for me it is a principle that I follow. I want to improve my skills not to prove that I’m strong, but I’m doing it because I love to do it. It is a freedom of expression where you can be who you are and nobody can judge you. It has different styles based on the person’s preference, and  different genres to choose from. Having said all that I believe that no matter how good you are, no image-contactsmatter how difficult your choreography is, if you don’t put your heart and soul into your work, then your dance is just like a steak with no flavor in it. It may look good but if you don’t feel the dancer’s heart then the appreciation is gone.

I’ve met a lot of dancers in my time with the community. I’ve learned that the most humble persons in the dance community are the ones who actually “MADE IT” and the ones that doesn’t are the ones who are very arrogant. From that little research that I made, I now realize the concept of ATTITUDE = 100%.  I now fully understand that the arrogant people in the community are just improving their skills but never reached success because of their attitude. The people that desire to improve their skills just to show-off, are the same people who are being “ASSKISSERS” once they’re with the strongest dancers in the community and claims that their already on their level just because of several workshops.

The knowledge that you gain from every workshop is supposed to be shared and not bragged. Every workshop you attend doesn’t just contain the choreography and the foundations of that genre, but it contains much more deeper than that. It will teach you that everything that they taught you is based on their experience and the knowledge that they’ve gained when they’re just starting. Every workshop teaches us that in order for you to become a great dancer you must work hard, take negativity as a challenge, be humble, and most importantly, put your heart into it. In that way you will improve not only your skills but also your personality.

Dance is a delicate balance between perfection and beauty.

UC FUEGO

12294724_1709250285972799_6336305063990558141_nYou may think that this is just an ordinary dance organization where people just come and go whenever they want to and dance whenever they feel like it. Well you’re wrong, this is the kind of organization that you should be having because of these extraordinary people with extraordinary talents. According to their President, having them is a great blessing because they show how dedicated they are in what they’re doing and they show great love and respect to us as their mentors unconditionally. He is so proud to be called as their “Daddy Shin” not because of their moves but because of their love and willingness to learn. Even though he’s FAT for a Dance Organization President he’s not ashamed of teaching them because he believes that “EVERYONE CAN DANCE”.

UC FUEGO has a vision for their group and that vision is simple. “TO BE A BETTER PERSON” not just in dancing but in CHARACTER. Their mission is to give confidence to these students and erase their doubts and insecurities from themselves because they know that most of these students are very shy and doesn’t have the initiative to do what they want to do because of fear, and doubt. They want to empower them and make them understand that in order for them to move forward in life they must make their own de12313699_1709499802614514_3737223229612837589_ncisions wisely and close to reality. UC FUEGO want them to be GOOD LEADERS someday that is why they’re teaching them to lead.

They also want to help these students not just on their moves but also in their problems. The President believes that the best way to deal with their problems is to have someone who is willing to listen and who is open minded. These students need someone who they can trust with their whole heart so that they won’t feel lonely. He also made this group to move them away from any vices like drugs, alcohol, and especially BAD PEOPLE. He wants them to realize their potential and he wants them to believe that they CAN DO ANYTHING with hard work, dedication, and passion. He wants them to believe that they should follow their passion and follow excellence in what they want to do, in that way success will follow them.

We have a bond that nobody can break and even though the time comes that our school will disapprove our group, our friendship and our bond will never fade. Nobody can stop us, Nobody can break us, as long as we’re together, we’re unbreakable. – UC FUEGO President
