19 Jan #BALicanNATIN
The homecoming showcase hosted by Ryan Bang and Karylle began with a specially created shadow play number by El Gamma Penumbra, followed by the opening number of the Silver Jubilarians. Children of the 80s and 90s cheered loudly as the Maneuvers and Universal Motion Dancers brought back memories as they performed nostalgic dances to the tunes we grew up with. It was especially interesting to see the 2 dance groups collaborate on a number together. No homecoming show is complete without the guest appearances of showbiz heart throbs and this year was no exception. Donny Pangilinan, surprise guest Alden Richards and Sam Milby brought down the house as they sang before an exited crowd.
As exciting as it was to watch the special guests perform, the real stars of the show were the Jubilarian Performers. It was wonderful to watch Batches 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1997 and 1992 perform. In line with our travel theme, their dance numbers were songs from Sweden, Korea, Brazil, Philippines, UK and USA respectively. We could see all the effort and hard work they put in to turn in such beautiful performances. Above all, the friendship and camaraderie of the ICANs were definitely shining through and made the show more enjoyable.
Homecoming 2017 presented by the Shrikers, ICA Class of 1992, was definitely worth coming home to.
