The Fiesta Filipina Dance Troupe of Canada is on a very important voyage -- ownership of a permanent home.

After the success of its 37th repertoire entitled "Kulay", the company realized that to reach its full potential and secure its presence and status as the premier traditional Filipino dance company in North America, it needs to find a home. Fiesta's home will allow the troupe to not only maintain their current level of excellence but potentially exceed them.

Looking to September 2003, we started planning to buy a building and we launched the project in November 2004. We were faced with so many difficulties but the overwhelming financial support of the Fiesta Board of Directors, the Fiesta Parents' Association, the Fiesta Alumni Group, the Fiesta Assistance and Services and the community gave us the motivation to continue on our journey for our home.

Finally, in March of 2003, we decided to buy the 2,480 square feet property at Unit 6-7125 Pacific Circle, Mississauga, Ontario. On June 7, 2004, the dance troupe moved to its new home.

This is where our next difficult journey began. We needed to renovate our home to make it serve our purposes better. Where would we get the money? We have the mortgage to pay and the operating expenses to worry about and we were not prepared for this other bigger problem.

Modesty aside, our organization is made up of so many talented people who could not only dance, sing, play instruments, etc. but could also find ways of rescuing us in the midst of difficulties. One of our members requested the financial help of the Trillium Foundation.

With the aid of the Trillium Foundation, we received a grant to aid in the renovation. Our home is now ready. The grand opening of the building was held on October 2, 2005.
