The ANNIE DIVINGRACIA-SARTORIO School of Performing Arts celebrated the Spanish influence on Ilonggo culture with cocktails and show called Abre Salòn at the historic art deco Casa Real de Iloilo.

With euphoria and nostalgia, the event had flamenco as the piece de resistance! Socialites, professionals, students, dance enthusiasts and young misses regaled Iloilo’s perfume set and art lovers with a 45-minute action-packed performance which left everyone asking for more.
