LAHING BATANGAN DANCE TROUPE, the official dance company of the Lyceum of the Philippines University (Batangas), marks more than a decade of advocacy to the authentic Philippine arts and culture. Founded in 1995, the group is a duly accredited proponent of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), duly recognized by the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and is enjoying a reputation as one of the premiere folk dance troupes in the country.

Starting as a fledgling university-based dance troupe, Lahing Batangan gradually soared to greater heights as the ultimate cultural ambassadors not only of the university but of the entire Batangas Province as well.
In 2002, the dance company broke grounds by being one of the featured artists for the Intramuros’ “Concert Night at the Old Walls” and participating in the 2002 Philippine Independence Day Grand Parade at the Quirino Grandstand, Luneta as part of the WOW Philippines contingent. That year propelled the group to its national reputation of what it is right now.

In January 2003, Lahing Batangan staged its first full-length concert at the “Concert at the Park” in Rizal Park, Luneta featuring Mindanao festival dances.
