The MassKara Fes­ti­val dancers won bronze at the World Mask Dance Com­pe­ti­tion 2018, which took place over the week­end in An­dong City, South Korea.

“It is an honor to rep­re­sent the Philip­pines and Bacolod in­ter­na­tion­ally,” the dancers said in a group mes­sage.

The group is com­prised of 10 dancers from Bacolod City’s Barangay Tan­gub.

“This en­hances fur­ther the at­trac­tion and im­age of our very own MassKara Fes­ti­val,” said Bacolod City Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia. “We knew that our tal­ented and ded­i­cated dancers [would] cap­ture the hearts and ad­mi­ra­tion of so many.”

The event, which in­cluded con­tes­tants from 13 coun­tries, was part of the An­dong Mask Dance Fes­ti­val, which came to a close over the week­end.

Ac­cord­ing to the Korea Tourism Or­ga­ni­za­tion, An­dong City is con­sid­ered the “cap­i­tal of Korean tra­di­tional cul­ture.”/
