The most visually arresting festival street dance celebrations will compete in Aliwan Fiesta 2017 on April 20-22, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex in Pasay City.

Now on its 15th year, Aliwan Fiesta is a festival street dance competition.

While most of the dances are based on folkloric rituals handed down from generation to generation, the street dances are modern-day interpretations.
