After winning the Youth Asian Grand Prix Award last weekend at the Asian Grand Prix International Ballet Competition in Hong Kong, the Bacolod City Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) passed a resolution, during its regular session earlier this week, commending 16-year-old Rench Isaac Soriano of Bacolod City.
According to the resolution, authored by City Councilor Em Ang, “Soriano demonstrated exceptional talent and high standard of artistry and technique.”
The document went on to say the Dance Pull School of Performing Arts student displayed the “international competitiveness and irrefutable skill and talent of Bacoleño artists.”
Along with the award, Soriano won a full scholarship to the New Zealand School of Dance and HK$30,000, or nearly P196,000.
The competition is an annual event in Hong Kong, which invites international juries, tutors, and ballet stars to participate./WDJ
