One of the most impressive cultural things in the Philippines, in my personal eyes, is the dancing of TINIKLING.
Two people are holding long heavy bamboo poles and move them on the rhytm of the music and clap them together. The dancers step in between those poles without hurting their feet. You should watch this
movies found on You Tube.
Filipinos all over the world are showing this dance to other people when they are celebrating a fiesta.
here in the US and the rhytm goes faster and faster:
And a folklore group from Leyte
It gets even more spectacular when there are 4 poles crossing eachother and the dancer steps in between them. I couldn’t find images of it, but believe me it is something…..
