Through cultural music, dance, and stories, PSA Barkada celebrates Filipino culture and identity and spreads this appreciation throughout the entire campus community.

PSA Barkada is a cultural dancing group that celebrates Filipino culture and identity through music, dance, and storytelling. We welcome dancers and non-dancers of all skill levels, and serve to create a tight-knit community within PSA. Our talents spread across cultural dancing choreography, costume-making, and traditional music performance.

Barkada participates in events year-round – most notably, at FACT and Battle of the Bamboo, hosted by FIA at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In addition, we perform at various events around campus and within the Champaign-Urbana community, collaborating with other organizations such as the Asian American Association and the Taiwanese American Students Club.

Cultural Chairs – Kurt Leano and Ryan Talusan
