·1 min read

THE world-famous dancing inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) took the center stage again when they performed Friday, August 12, 2022.

Despite the downpour, around 800 inmates graciously danced to the tune of different music in front of Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia and other high-ranking government officials in Central Visayas.

The persons deprived of liberty were taught by Dancesport Team Cebu led by renowned Cebuano choreographer Edward Hayco.

Garcia said they are planning to bring back the regular public viewing of the inmate's performances after it was halted in 2010.

After the performance, the Cebu Provincial Government donated kits containing basic commodities as a token to the inmates of CPDRC.

The Cooperative Bank of Cebu and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) also allowed the inmates to experience their services, such as opening a savings account and availment of free skills training. (SunStar Philippines)
