Back in the 1990s, boybands were all the rage, but they weren’t all just a bunch of singing men. Dance groups were just as popular, with three of the most famous being the Universal Motion Dancers, Streetboys, and the Manoeuvres. Together, the three dominated local dance entertainment for most of the decade, garnering legions of screaming fans. 

Because there’s been such a renewed interest for all things 90s, it wasn’t long before somebody brought up the idea of bringing these groups back to perform all of their biggest dance hits. On January 31, 2020, members of all three dance groups are getting back together for a one-night only show called 90’s Dance Concert: Panahon Ko ‘To.

Headlining the show are Wowie de Guzman, James Salas, Jim Salas, Gerry Oliva, Marco McKinley, and Norman Santos of the Universal Motion Dancers (UMD); Vhong Navarro, Danilo Barrios, Chris Cruz, and Nicko Manalo of Streetboys; and Joshua Zamora, Jason Zamora, Michael Flores, Jon Supan, Reden Cruz, Jhon Cruz, and Rene Sagaran of Manoeuvres.
