Over the years, PURE has had the chance to perform all across Canada, creating some of the most incredible and unforgettable Debutante Ball's people have ever seen! Our goal is always to make sure that you and your guests (from your toddlers to all the parents and grandparents) are having a blast and get to celebrate with their friends and loved ones. But the one detail that will likely play the biggest role in how your Debutante Ball is remembered, is the music and the dancing. A lot of other things are forgotten, but everyone remembers the introduction, our high-energy interactive dancers, your party animator (MC), the music everyone danced to, and singing along to their favourite tracks.

When our team of entertainers are recruited to work for PURE, they are all required to go through an extensive training program, where we teach them how to properly DJ and MC a variety of events, which allows us to ensure that your teenager can celebrate this milestone in the most epic and fun way. Not only do our entertainers know how to get the kids and adults out of their shells and hop on the dance floor and dance along to their favourite songs, but we also offer a variety of lighting, f/x and staging options to make the party extra special. Whether it be Co2 bazooka blasters, cold sparks, video party or live entertainment, we know how to make your child’s simcha extra special! That's what makes PURE the best Debutante Ball DJ service available in Canada.

The Philippine Debut is a cultural tradition for the Filipino community. It is a coming-of-age celebration for Philippine women that is somewhat reminiscent of the Latinx tradition of the Quinceañera celebration. The difference between the Quinceañera and the Philippine Debut is the age at which the celebration takes place. The Philippine debut celebrates a woman entering into her 18th year, while the Quinceañera takes place on a young lady’s 15th birthday.

On their 18th birthday, Philippine women throw this large party, complete with their own hand-picked debut court of 18 people. These 18 people are 9 males and 9 females who the celebrant pairs off into partners. The celebrant’s court usually wears a uniform formal outfit chosen by the celebrant similar to that of a wedding party, while the celebrant typically wears an extravagant ball gown.

The birthday celebrant along with her partner and court perform traditional debut dances for their guests. It is common for the debutante and her court to perform Filipino Folk Dances such as the Tinikling, even wearing the traditional Filipino folk clothing. The most important dance that the celebrant and her court performs is known as the “Grand Cotillion Dance” which is usually a classic waltz. There is also an “18 Roses Dance” where 18 males picked by the celebrant beforehand dance with her after presenting her with a single red rose. This dance is almost always preceded with the memorable “Father and Daughter Dance”.

During the celebration, the debutante also has 18 chosen “candles”. These “candles” are females who know the celebrant and must give a short speech on either their relationship with the celebrant and/or any special birthday wishes they have for their celebrant. After all the food, entertainment, and Philippine Debut traditions for this wonderful occasion have been completed, the celebrant brings the celebration to a close with a Debutante’s speech in which she shares her life experience and gratitude with her beloved guests. This is one of the most memorable events in the life of a special young person and their family.
