The homey, neighborhood lifestyle mall in Pasig that is Ayala Malls The 30th, brought more fun, cheer and energy to the community by kicking off the Christmas season with “I Got Stung,” a musical performance by the Steps Dance Project.
The mesmerizing contemporary ballet was inspired by the unforgettable music of Sting and was choreographed by the famous James Laforteza.
From Sting’s seductive hit, “Roxanne,” to the nostalgic melodies and rock anthems of “Shape of My Heart” and “It’s Probably Me,” the audience was enthralled. Later in the show, special guest performer GianMagdangal delighted the guests further with his smooth, powerful vocals.
“Usually, Christmas at the mall is all about bazaars and Christmas carols. We don’t get to see too many dances, more so ballet, so I was completely blown away by tonight’s performance. I can’t wait to bring my husband and children next time,” shared Mika Lagdameo-Martinez, style icon, influencer and blogger, who were among the guests during the program kick off.
I Got Stung is just one of the feats Ayala Malls The 30th will pull off to bring to life Christmas cheer and merry.
For its first Christmas, the mall embraces a community-inspired theme with its 15-feet Christmas Tree, located at the center of the mall.
Imbibing the Yuletide spirit, the Christmas tree is decorated with hundreds of traditional poinsettia flowers, aptly creating that feel of romantic nostalgia and an ambience of home.
“Ayala Malls The 30th was specifically designed to be more intimate and homey, as it is a neighborhood/ community mall,” Mariana Zobel de Ayala, the general manager of the mall shared during the holiday launch.
“Through this mall, we’re trying to redefine what the mall culture is and expand the experiences you can enjoy here. From concerts to dance performances, art exhibits and even food bazaars that highlight local produce, Ayala Malls The 30th aspires to be more than just a destination for shopping and dining, we want to offer you and your family and friendsmore reasons to bond and gather,” Zobel de Ayala finally noted.
