The CLSU STUDENT CULTURAL SOCIETY DANCE TROUPE is a group of students and alumni of the university with a common goal — to preserve the Philippine dances through best performances, thus, developing the personality and self-confidence of its members.
It was in the early 70’s that the SCS was conceptualized under the leadership of Dr. Emilia T. Velarde, the director of the Student Services Unit.
With passing of time, the SCS proved their worth to be the university official dance troupe. With an array choreographer and dance directors like Ramon Reyes, Felipe Reyes, Belinda Ching, Francisco Santos, Delfin Fernando, Elmer Sison, Carina Mabesa, Jonathan Galope, Pamela Bayudan, Jennifer Taylan-De Jesus, Bryan Salvatierra, and Elenita Calderon, the SCS has gone a long way.
Composed of the enthusiastic college students and alumni of CLSU and ably supported by the administration, staff of OSA and the Dean of Students, Dr. Elizabeth Suba, the group has served its purpose not only in the university or in neighboring agencies and provinces, but internationally, as well. The Maejo University, Rajamangala University and Filipino Community in Changmai, Thailand in 2006 and Maejo University, Thailand in 2009 and 2010; and in Marriot Hotel and University of GUAM in 2005, Palace Hotel Guam in 2006, and Marriot Hotel Guam in 2008, witness the astounding full-length productions of Philippine.
The folk dances and music of the SCS under the auspices of Dr. Zenaida Serna, former dean of students.
To be officially part of this family, one must a bona fide CLSU/CTC student and must pass the audition; with pleasing personality and with good moral character; no fraternities and sororities; and graceful and timed-in music.
Truly SCS leaves a legacy, which will be passed on to the next generation.
