Brandon Vera and Ana Julaton Are All Geared Up for One FC: Warrior's Way

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Who isn't excited to see our amazing Filipino-blooded fighters enter the One FC ring and triumph over their opponents? I don't know about you but I'm more than thrilled to see who gets to emerge as victorious on the big fight night when we witness several fighters try to overcome each others strength, stamina and fury. It will be a spectacular night filled with raw guts empowered by cheers from the audience.

I am ecstatic to see international MMA superstar Brandon Vera and world-renowned female boxer turned MMA fighter Ana Julaton as they battle it out against equally formidable fighters. These two are all geared up for ONE FC: WARRIOR’S WAY this December 5, 2014, and I'm sure all roads will lead to SM MOA Arena in Pasay City as people flock towards the much awaited MMA bouts.

Coach Angelo Reyes and Ricky Lundell coached both Vera and Julaton in preparation for their fights. The two had joint training sessions at MP Training Club, located at Los Angeles, California.

Brandon Vera made the trip to MP Training Club in Los Angeles, California to train alongside Ana Julaton and her long-time coach Angelo Reyes. Vera worked several rounds of boxing pad work with Reyes while doing several rounds of training with Julaton’s training partners.

Alice Reyes’ Cinderella: Kudos to Ballet Philippines for a Grandiose Opening Night

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Ballet Philippines sent out an early Christmas treat for the young and young at heart last November 28, 2014 during the opening night of Alice Reyes’ Cinderella at Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo, Cultural Center Philippines. This is the fifth re-staging and also the thirty-third anniversary of the show which was first staged in 1981.

For its opening night, the coveted role of Cinderella was played by Soloist Denise Parungao who was last seen in the title role of another Ballet Philippines’ production ‘Giselle’ during the past two years. Her Prince Charming was played by Principal Dancer Richardson Yadao whose performance was as fluid and graceful as his partner. This star-studded event was also joined by another great ballerina in the likes of the Madame Isabelle Garachon, wife of the French Ambassador of the Philippines.

“I have always wanted to do a ballet for children-Cinderella was the perfect material. After all I can’t think of childhood without Mother Goose and Cinderella. Working on a full-length ballet patterned after the traditional classic form presented many problems. The easiest way would have been to adhere to the Cinderella scenario already established by such noted choreographers as Petipa, Fokine, Sergeyev, and Ashton, among many others. What kept me on track in my version was the one thought that that eventually became a guide: the ballet was for Christ and Sara and Marco and Carlo and little Alice and all my wonderful little friends who keep bringing ‘wonder’ into my life. I would like to give them something back in return" says Alice Reyes, Ballet Philippines’ founder and Artistic Director Emeritus.
