The One and only Club Mwah.

Chris Nicolas, The Only Diva of Club Mwah
Since 2004, Club Mwah is the one and only Las Vegas inspired show-stopping performance bar in the Philippines, still giving us jaw dropping show that only they can offer, one name behind the colorful costumes and grand production numbers is Chris Nicolas, the in house Choreographer, Director and Designer, and the only one Diva of their center stage.

“Sa totoo lang in the Philippines, etu lang ang may ganitong seryosong show, iba hindi tumatagal, etu yung pang long lasting entertainment, etu yun eh.” Nicolas said. 
Nicolas not known to many is a former member of Bayanihan Dance Company, a graduate of Physical Education at the Philippine Normal College, start as a dancer in 2004 during the establishment of Club Mwah, after that he takes over as a choreographer until now. He draws his inspirations depends on her audiences, he believes that it’s a constant change, that they need to keep creating production numbers that people will love.

“Passion ko talaga ang sumayaw, pag nakakarinig ako ng music lumalabas ang mga ideas, na parang gusto mong i-interpret.” Nicolas explain. 

Follies De Mwah is the term for all the dancers performing in their bar, for many generations they develop and help a lot of dancers across all genders, as the master choreographer he sees to it that the one they select are in line with their standards, first is the height, the willingness to learn even though don’t have a background in dancing, and lastly the attitude to which Nicolas said is the most important part of their requirement.

“Una ang height, iba yung matangkad, easy to pick up steps, kahit hindi sya marunong, wala syang formal training sa dancing, and ang Attitude, wag madaling ma-hurt kapag kino-korek, kailangan welcome sa correction, kasi puro corrections dito,  hindi yung napagalitan lang nagpa-paalam na, sayang naman.” Nicolas added. 
In the past 16 years, Nicolas admit to us that it is not easy running a Club like this, they spend millions of pesos for their costumes in all their numbers, and that’s not easy to return, with all the different kind of Clubs around Metro Manila offering many things they feel that they are not in competition with them.

“Dumating  yung time na gusto ko ng tumigil, sabi ng mga friends ko,  Chris wag naman wala naman kasing ganyang dito, kaya nanghihinayang ako. Kung makakakita ako ng isang lugar na may napakagandang show, sabihin na nating mas maganda sa amin, gi-give up na ako, kayo naman. Since wala nakakahinayang naman.” Nicolas said in closing.

Nicolas is optimistic in the coming months, soon they will open a new Comedy Bar and they are reviving in catering the tourists market to be their regular audiences, trade shows for tour and travel operators are in the works now to re-introduce Club Mwah in a different level.
