SAFIRE Summer 2010 may be over but the buzz about the girls’ story collection projects certainly isn’t! Below is just a sample of what you missed out on during SAFIRE’s End of Summer Celebration:
“Dreams” by Honnie Diala
This piece was about my parent's dreams for my two sisters, Lovely and Jody, and I to be successful in life and not go through the hardships they faced in order for us to be where we are standing at this very moment. This is for Josephine and Rodolfo Diala. I love you all very much.
This was my first time ever making a contemporary-like piece. And my first time performing a piece I made in front of an audience. Never have I felt so proud of myself just by simply doing one of the many things I love to do, dance. This is definitely one the biggest accomplishments I have made.
Dancers: (from left to right at ending bow) Holly Liu, Lily Dinh, Judy Wu, Sophia Lu, Honnie Diala, Jennifer Lu, Lonna Lu, Ellie Cao. Thank you girls SO much for helping me dance this piece.
Recorded by: Ate Lovely Diala with Kuya Chuck Jose's wonderful camera
