Cebu Inmates’ Performance Allowed Again

CEBU CITY, Cebu - The world-famous dancing inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) are getting their grooves back after Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia allowed them to perform again.

The dancing inmates' monthly performance was suspended since March following a near-riot that occurred while the prisoners were rehearsing.

This Saturday, the inmates will do their version of the hottest Korean dance craze "Oppa Gangnam Style," for public viewing.

Garcia's decision to restore the dancing routine of the inmates was made on recommendation by Atty. Jose Ma. Gastardo, the capitol consultant on planning and development and jail matters.

Gastardo said the Garcia advised him and CPDRC management about it and if they could prepare a new dance presentation. The choreographer, Vince Rosales complied and came up with a new dance routine.
