WHAT IS AMERICAN CENTER OF PHILIPPINE ARTS (ACPA)?
The American Center of Philippine Arts (ACPA) was founded in February of 2009 by Herna Cruz-Louie and Jay Loyola. Jay and Herna both had envisioned an organization that could provide young people the opportunity to learn about Philippine history and culture by using Philippine dance, music and the arts as a tool. ACPA’s mission is to provide a unique educational and developmental platform for multidisciplinary Philippine arts through innovative hands-on classes, collaborations, networking opportunities, and showcasing events. ACPA strives to nurture both traditional and progressive Philippine arts to strengthen the Pilipino community and ethnic identity.
WHAT IS THE S.E.E.D. YOUTH PROGRAM?
S.E.E.D. stands for Students Enriched in Education & Dance. Students ages 5-18 are instructed on the various Philippine Folk Dance forms and applies it to choreography. Philippines history and culture is also emphasized. Because our public schools focus on western content, our young people are not learning about their own personal ethnic histories. There have been a wide range of studies that have shown that young people who have positive experiences in cultural or ethnic identity are less likely to have depression, aggression, and/or put themselves in at-risk situations. ACPA seeks to provide these positive experiences to the Pilipino American youth in our program through history and dance.
