The Mutya Philippine Dance Company was formed in April of 1990 in response to several forces. Young Filipino Americans wanted to understand their roots. They wanted a place where they felt others could understand their struggles and values while being able to feel comfortable in their own skin. Parents of these children also wanted an organization that could really teach the beauty and diversity of the Filipino culture through music and dance.
2015 marks the dance company's 25th anniversary. Over the 25 years we have been in existence, our art form has touched countless lives. Mutya’s mission is to preserve, develop, teach, and share Filipino Cultural Heritage, Art, Folklore, and other indigenous cultural traditions through its Dances, Music, and Songs with the purpose of instilling Filipino pride amongst its youth.
