What is PhilCAS?
PhilCAS of BC is a registered non-profit organization primarily dedicated to ‘introducing Philippine culture through dance and music and instilling in Filipino children a sense of pride, cultural awareness and identity in their Filipino heritage’.
In addition, we wish to focus on strengthening the concept of harmoniously existing with the various multi-cultural sectors in the community. The members of this Society are mostly young Filipino-Canadians whose main interests are to discover their roots and eventually propagate this traditions to their peers.
The society has been focusing on the dance field since its inception. Filipinos love to celebrate fiestas and social gatherings which usually involves traditional dancing which they are proud of.
The performers have been trained to project like the character that they are assigned and this helps the audience to feel as though they are experiencing Filipino tradition.
In 2005, PhilCAS decided to branch out into a new form of entertainment, in the form of music. The performers have used their musical talents by performing both Filipino and Western Christmas carols to others through an ensemble of instruments, made of Bamboo from the Philippines.
PhilCAS has also started to use their vocals to celebrate the season of Christmas and in the future, they will include Filipino folk songs to their list.
