Liechtenstein currently holds the position as the President of Ballet Philippines, where she is expresses her passion for the arts, while giving back to underprivileged communities. Her community work as president covers Rotary Sampaguita, Zonta Club of Muntinlupa, and charter president of Zonta Club of Alabang. She is also on the board of several other charitable organizations.
At the very core of Liechtenstein’s tenure at the dance company, is a mission to bring the magic of dance to the less privileged. Over the last few years, various outreach programs have been launched to shed light on the power of dance to uplift, empower, and create positive change. For instance, Ballet Philippines’ Share the Magic program invites over 10,000 beneficiaries from public schools and underserved communities to each season’s production. In addition, the Men and Women in Uniform program invites our courageous military, naval, and air force members as special guests of the ballet.
Recently, Liechtenstein launched a new cultural outreach program called Ballet Brigade. The program is rooted in the three pillars: Entertain, Educate, and Entwine. It kicked off last October 14, 2023 at Aroma, Tondo, where children of the area were treated to a makeshift dance class, a lively dance performance, and gifts to share with their families. The company also extended dance lessons in the future for those interested to learn.
Two other outreach programs have been accomplished since then. The second, in collaboration with Zonta Club of Alabang, raised awareness on HPV and Breast Cancer, and included free screenings for all. Ballet Philippines also traveled to the province of Kalinga-Apayao, where they hosted a makeshift dance class for over 300 children in two locations. “Through our new program, we hope to continue spreading awareness about the ballet and the magic it can bring,” says Liechtenstein. “Dance is for everybody, and I’m thrilled that Ballet Philippines could be a part of a young girl or boy’s journey of discovery.”
