MANILA, Philippines —The holidays are approaching and the chill in the air is starting to set in. For families already making plans for meaningful get-togethers, the different sights and sounds of Christmas are anticipated.

This year, Greenhills continues its Christmas tradition by switching up a bright and dazzling new spectacle, all with a snappy dance routine to boot.

Last November 15, the metro’s shopping mecca has debuted its first-ever, one-of-a-kind Laser Light Symphony right at the heart of G-Strip.

The Laser Light Symphony was led by world-class laser light dancers. Cagadas

“The theme this year is all about the Christmas Wonderland, and we prepared this unique and exciting laser light show as a major part of it. As opposed to the computer- or machine-generated attraction, this one includes a ‘human touch’ to the presentation, to make it much more freestyle and a lot more interactive,” said Jimmy Ismael, chief executive officer of Ortigas & Company.

Orchestrated by the multi-awarded lighting designer, Voltaire de Jesus, the laser show is composed of world-class laser dance experts utilizing laser pointers and light-up costumes. Set to exhilarating jaunty electronic music, the performers are ready to give the public a show like never before.

“I have been living in Greenhills all my life, so I can really say that the Greenhills Shopping Center is really part of the Christmas Celebration of everyone here in the City of San Juan, and also of those from other cities who come all the way here, just to celebrate Christmas here in the Shopping Center,” said San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora, who also graced the event.
