Barbie Forteza And Sanya Lopez Learn Tap Dancing For Historical Drama “Pulang Araw”

For their roles as Vaudeville stars in the upcoming historical drama “Pulang Araw” lead stars Barbie Forteza and Sanya Lopez had to learn the art of tap dancing. Barbie and Sanya shared that there were restrictions they had to follow because tap dancing is quite different from just your usual hip-hop dance and whatever else they do usually as performers. One of the requirements is to not go to the gym which the two seemed to not mind at all. Sanya and Barbie are joined by Alden Richards, David Licauco, and Dennis Trillo in the who which will premiere on Netflix PH on July 26th then on GMNA Network’s primetime on the 29th.

Barbie Forteza and Sanya Lopez are still taking their tap dancing lessons for their roles in “Pulang Araw.”

In Nelson Canlas’ report on “24 Oras,” Wednesday, the Sparkle stars admitted that it is not easy to learn the dance.

“Mahirap din naman sa [‘All-Out Sundays’] pero iba ‘yung level ng hirap ng tap dancing kasi basic pa lang, nakakalito na eh,” Sanya said.

Barbie added, “Tsaka may incorporation ng sound, unlike sa hiphop na parang hindi mo maririnig ‘yung paa mo. Ito kasi dapat marinig ‘yung footworks mo, ‘yung steps, lahat. Kaya dapat tama yung coordination mo.”

Barbie and Sanya are also prohibited from doing ballet and going to the gym.

“Bawal daw mag-ballet. ‘Di naman ako marunong mag-ballet, so OK lang,” Barbie said.

“Tsaka naninigas ‘yung katawan daw lalo na sa paa kapag galing kang hiphop. Kaya pinagbabawalan tayong mag-gym din,” Sanya said. (SOURCE)
