PASACAT is a Philippine folk dance, but in San Diego, it began as the acronym for the Philippine-American Society and Cultural Arts Troupe. Today, PASACAT's mission is to preserve and promote Asian Pacific culture through the arts, thereby, extending goodwill and enhancing cultural understanding.
PASACAT, established in 1970, continues to contribute to the cultural enrichment of San Diego, California and Southwest Region of the United States. More than 40 performances are given yearly by the 60 member company to an audience totaling 16,000 for numerous educational, cultural, religious and social organizations. Major productions include the Junior Dance Concert, Extravaganza and Parol Festival.
The Art of Filipino Dance will be presented as a workshop at the Magkaisa Student Parent Conference this year! Get ready to dance!
