DANCE

Native dances occur in amazing diversity throughout the Philippines. However, many of them are of varied origins and functions Some are part of a tribal rite or sacrifice; others are in native feasts and festivals to conciliate the spirits, seek deliverance from pestilence or mark births and deaths; and still others have a lighter burden to carry: flirtation or courtship, or to lighten the tasks of planting or harvesting.
