For this year
“For this year, Tempo aims to continue learning and building foundations in dance through regular training and conditioning of the members, keeping in mind that it is important we grow in our skills not only individually, but also as a team, so we may move forward together in unity despite present issues and struggles that may hinder the team’s development.” – Anya Winona Reyes, Club President
Our mission is to teach and enrich the MakSci community about the significance and art of dance, emphasizing humility and diligence as essential values of learners and ensuring the growth of its members in terms of skills and character.
Tempo is a club dedicated to promoting the art form of dance, as well as educating the MakSci community about its significance. It is committed to developing and honoring its members’ abilities to execute creative and rhythmic expressions through various dance styles. With its motto “Fueled by faith. Run by passion.”, Tempo aims to be role models, displaying qualities that radiate faith and hard work, and qualities that emphasize humility and diligence. In Tempo, discipline and hard work is exercised to improve camaraderie and overall excellence.
Our vision is to become role models in the MakSci community, displaying qualities that radiate faith and hard work, qualities that cannot only be seen in our lives as dancers but also as students and citizens of the country.
As a part of every dancer’s journey, more than learning about vocabulary and enriching their knowledge in dance, they must also regularly train their bodies to improve necessary components of physical fitness such as endurance, flexibility, body coordination, and muscular strength. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, members were restricted to meet and train in a face-to- face set-up. Nevertheless, Tempo’s dance coach, Wee Remigio, ensures that they remain conditioned by conducting regular virtual training sessions.
“Silence” Tempo Choreography Video
What better way to introduce a new dance crew to the student body than present to them an official dance performance video? To kick start Tempo’s activities as Makati Science High School’s dance crew, founding members filmed a performance video of original choreography to the song Silence by Marshmello ft. Khalid and posted it on the club’s social media platforms. This was also the members’ first creative project to work on with each other and so fundamental principles of the team and small steps to achieving strong camaraderie were established throughout the creation of this project.
Chosen Ground 15, held on November 24, 2019, at New Frontier Theatre, was Tempo’s first dance competition since being officially formed in April of the same year. Hosted by the UP Streetdance Crew, the competition was open to all dance crews of the Philippines, school-based and independent crews. This gave Tempo good exposure to the dance culture outside the school through witnessing and meeting fellow dancers and experiencing building teamwork in a competitive setting.

Agapay Online Fundraising Concert
To help Gail Salor, a student of Makati Science High School, in her fight against stage 3 lymphoma cancer, Tempo participated in “Agapay”, an online fundraising concert led by the MSHS Supreme Student Government. The crew performed pieces of original choreography to the songs She Was Mine, Windowpane, and Biglang Liko. Together with the event coordinators, fellow performers, supporters, and those who donated, Agapay was successful to have raised significant financial support for the Salor Family.
