Salindayaw Dance Company (SDC) grooved to beats from the millennial generation’s timeline as they held their 11th annual concert titled “Reminiscence: A millenial’s memory lane” at the Sentrum, Feb 15.

The nostalgic concert was composed of eight dance numbers with songs from the 90’s to the 2010’s, portraying the growth of a millennial.

The early performances were inspired by the millennial generation’s childhood cartoon opening soundtracks from Mr. Bean, Spongebob, Dora, Barney, and more.

Afterwards, SDC danced to the adolescent period with songs like Dilemma by Nelly (ft. Kelly Rowland), Teach Me How to Dougie by Cali Swag District, Let’s Get It Started by The Black Eyed Peas, Everybody by Backstreet Boys and even dance hits like Barbie Girl by Aqua, Sayaw Kikay by Viva Hotbabes, Sige I-kembot by UD4, and My Humps by the Black Eyed Peas.

It was followed by a spoken word poetry performance to Salbakuta’s Stupid Love expressing the pain of a hopeless lover.

The graduating members of the Salindayaw then projected a performance inspired by F.R.I.E.N.D.S., featuring the series’ opening song, I’ll Be There For You by The Rembrandts.
