The Filipino Music and Arts Association of Canada Inc. or FMAACI held a 10-session dance workshop on August 31, 2022. The event was part of the Seven Oaks Healthy Living - Healthy Together Now (HTN) Program of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority with the support of Manitoba Health, Active Living, and Seniors.

Dancercise is a dance workshop with easy-to-follow dance steps and chair routines. Community members participated in the workshop at the Filipino Seniors Group Event Hall at 49 Euclid Avenue and was facilitated by Ms. Alma Ganaden, former representative of Dancing with the Stars - Canada, and head of the Movin’ Up Dancers.

A different workshop will also start this coming October under the same grant, which is a 10-session ukulele class for beginners. Interested individuals may e-mail for more information.

FMAACI is a federally registered non-profit organization that aims to explore and develop unique and creative approaches in the preservation, promotion, and blending of Filipino music and arts in a multi-cultural Canadian environment. – Ernesto Ofiaza
