13th July, 2018

By JASON JACK EBIT

KOTA KINABALU: A dance and cultural festival with a truly international presence is ongoing here until tomorrow (July 14).

Groups from Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Uzbekistan and Russia are joining 24 Malaysian schools and five international schools in the four-day Tugu Budaya Etnik Sabah & International Youth Folk Dance Festival at the Sabah Cultural Centre, Penampang Road from July 11-14.

Tugu Budaya Ethnik Sabah, which is in its 9th edition, aims at increasing the awareness of the importance of preserving and conserving cultural heritage among youth especially students, and fostering good relationships and understanding among participants through culture, said a spokesman for the organisers.

Besides providing opportunities for the youth to showcase their skills and talents, Tugu Budaya Etnik Sabah also focuses on promoting Sabah as a cultural-based tourism destination.

Besides the dancing and stage performances, there is also a photography contest, and a ‘selfie’ and ‘weifie’ contest during the event. The photography contest offers prize money of RM1, 500 for the champion, RM1, 000 for the first runner-up, and RM700 for the second runner-up and 10 consolation prizes of RM300 each.

Winners of the ‘selfie’ competition will each bring home a certificate with prize money of RM300, RM200 and RM100 for the champion, first runner-up and second runner-up respectively. Meanwhile, the ‘wefie’ competition offers prize money of RM500 for the champion, RM300 for the first runner-up, and RM200 for second runner-up, along with a certificate.

Tickets for the dance festival are available at Wisma Budaya, Lembaga Kebudayaan Negeri Sabah, Sabah Art Gallery Conservation Centre, and at the event’s venue at RM10 for adult and RM5 for children and students under 17.
