Malayan Colleges Laguna hosted Ballet Manila's "Ballet and Ballads" last October 10 in support of the dance company’s advocacy to promote arts and culture to tertiary students. The show’s principal dancer was prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, who, along with other dancers, performed classical ballets such as The Nutcracker, Giselle, Don Quixote and Swan Lake. The ballet dancers also incorporated arnis, the country’s national sport, into their performance. For the finale, they hit the stage with a mix of ballet, contemporary dance and hip-hop.
