During these extraordinary times our passion burns bright to keep dance and the arts alive. Through these creations we wish to uplift spirits, enliven dreams, and be a source of inspiration and hope. Together we continue to keep dancing with our collaborators, supporters, and like-minded artists.
Ballet Philippines presents, "Style Life Movement", a collaboration with Rustan’s, to showcase a fashion collection like no other, with the beautiful Ballet Philippines Core Dancers, against the glorious scenery of Sta. Elena Golf and Country Estate.
Together, these three organizations pay tribute to Filipino expression in art, style and landscape.
“Style, Life, Movement" beckons the audience to feel alive and with this feeling, to celebrate this collaboration as the first time in Philippine fashion retail to have a campaign in video format fusing the performing art of ballet and fashion.
Partnering with Ballet Philippines is one way for the country’s premier name in shopping to support the culture of awareness and appreciation for local artists. Rustan’s is known as a purveyor of Filipino Art, beginning with the luxury retailer’s foundress, Gliceria R. Tantoco, who launched Galerie Bleue at Rustan’s Makati back in the 1980s. Showcasing unending dedication to Filipino talent, fully represented by Ballet Philippines, is one of the foremost reasons for this collaboration.
Featuring brands like Natori, Lotus, ASTR, Keepsake the Label, Criselda Lontok, Hackett, Permanent Weekend, Pedro del Hierro and Ricardo Preto, the dynamic choreography by BP’s Artistic Director, Mikail Martynyuk, exhibits the ease and fluidity of the latest apparel pieces for both men and women.
With its World Premiere on Philippine Independence Day weekend, it is an appropriate occasion to celebrate the freedom to choose, freedom to dream, freedom to dance, and freedom to live! The spirited movements of BP core dancers, the exquisite fashion and picture-perfect nature combined depict a sense of freedom that perfectly suits this holiday's theme. Ballet Philippines, Rustan’s and Sta. Elena Golf and Country Club are three power institutions founded and perfected by Filipinos, for the Filipinos.
Ballet Philippines, now on its 52nd season, with Rustan’s, the luxury shopping destination, a proudly Filipino company that has been offering a world of choices to Filipino customers since 1952, proudly celebrates Philippine Independence Day and invites everyone to #KeepDancing
