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

PAST ACITIVITIES

Training Sessions

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.
