The CCP PASP - Regional Dance Training Program (RDTP) is designed and operated by the CCP as part of its commitment to reach out to the regional network and assist the growth of dancers situated in the regions through online dance technique lessons provided by the CCP.

Chosen CCP PASP – RDTP participants and endorsed dancers from the regions are then selected to participate in the CCP-PASP Regional Dancers’ Residency Program (RDRP). The program provides dancers from the regions the opportunity to train at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and other venues with the Artists of the CCP PASP.

Working and performing alongside professional dancers in daily dance technique classes and rehearsals in classical ballet, modern and contemporary dance; and mentorship under guest artists, teachers, and choreographers, including National Artists for Dance, in the study of original Filipino dance repertoire, will expose them to the highest standard of a professional dance career.

“At the end of the six-month program, the participants performed in full dance productions. And they go beyond the program and expand their horizons. The goal is to provide opportunities for regional artists and dancers to experience and perform on professional stages with fellow professional dancers and choreographers on Filipino masterpieces and productions,” shared CCP Arts Education Department Associate Artistic Director Eva Mari Salvador.

Urmeneta and Torte were participants of the CCP PASP- RDTP, meanwhile Malipot, Mabana, and Patoc were newly-endorsed scholars. 

Common Gynecological Concerns Women Should Not Ignore


Women’s health is a topic of utmost importance, and it’s essential for every woman to be aware of common gynecological concerns that can affect their well-being. While some issues may be minor, others could indicate a more significant problem. Regular check-ups and prompt attention to these concerns can help women maintain good gynecological health. This article will discuss some common gynecological concerns that women should not ignore.

1. Irregular Menstrual Cycles

Irregular periods, whether they are unusually heavy, frequent, or absent, can be a sign of various underlying issues, including hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid problems, or uterine conditions. Tracking your menstrual cycles and discussing any irregularities with your gynecologist or a specialist clinic for women’s health, like the London Pregnancy Clinic, if you believe the cause of your missed period is the result of pregnancy, but the home tests aren’t 100% clear. Whenever you have issues with your cycles, it is crucial to identify and address the root cause.

2. Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhea)

While some discomfort during menstruation is normal, severe pain (dysmenorrhea) that interferes with daily life could be indicative of conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). These conditions require medical evaluation and treatment to manage symptoms effectively.

3. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding

Any unusual vaginal bleeding between periods, after menopause, or during sexual intercourse should be investigated promptly. It can be a sign of infections, hormonal imbalances, cervical or uterine polyps, or even cervical cancer. Early detection is crucial for the best possible outcomes.

Jewelry You Need For Your Wedding Day


Selecting the right jewelry for your wedding day is an essential part of completing your bridal look. The jewelry you choose should complement your dress, enhance your overall appearance, and hold personal significance. If you are getting married, use this guide to help you decide on the jewelry you need for your wedding day:

1. Earrings

Earrings are a staple for most brides. The style you choose will depend on your hairstyle and personal preferences. Stud earrings are timeless and work well with most hairstyles, while drop earrings or chandelier earrings can add a touch of glamour. If you have a simple dress, you might opt for statement earrings to add a pop of drama. Pearls, diamonds, and cubic zirconia are popular for bridal earrings, but you can also choose colored gemstones to match your wedding theme or incorporate something blue.

2. Necklace

Whether you decide to wear a necklace or not depends on the neckline of your dress. For a strapless or sweetheart neckline, a delicate pendant or a statement necklace can be a stunning addition. If your dress has a higher neckline or intricate detailing, you might skip the necklace to let the dress shine.

3. Bracelet

A bracelet can add elegance and sophistication to your bridal ensemble. Tennis bracelets, pearl bracelets, or delicate bangles are popular choices. Your choice should coordinate with your other jewelry pieces and fit comfortably on your wrist. Ensure that the bracelet doesn't clash with the fabric of your dress or compete with other accessories. Everything should complement one another.

4. Rings

While you'll undoubtedly have your engagement ring on your wedding day, don't forget about your wedding band. These rings symbolize your commitment to each other, so it's essential to choose a band that complements your engagement ring. Whether you opt for traditional wedding rings by or a unique design, ensure that they fit well with your engagement ring and that both you and your partner are happy with them.
