Cordillera dances can be described as 'ritual-based' with movements that are 'very basic' and 'earthbound' which projects their close affinity with the earth.

Bontoc Dances
Ifugao Dances
Benguet Dances
Apayao Dances
Kalingga Dances
Rural Dances
Life among the lowland Filipinos could be the easiest. They enjoy the bounty of the plains and the wealth of the rivers and seas. Their proximity to these made life a little bearable than their relatives who opted to dwell on forest interiors or on mountainous and isolated parts of the archipelago.
Western Influenced Dances
Religion was not the only 'good' assimilated by the colony, but also culture. The Philippines was a Spanish Colony for some 333 years. Three centuries, 3 decades and 3 years would undeniably be more than enough for Spanish colonists to obliterate, erase and to some extent supplant the native culture of the Philippines.
Lesser Known/Tribal Dances
To this group of people-especially the ones from Mindanao- belongs a very rich warp and woof of cultures that existed since time immemorial. Life is an unceasing expression of their cultural identities. From their lore, visual arts, crafts and performing arts are very rich harvest of authentic samples of extremely beautiful pre-Hispanic “Philippine” culture.
Muslim Dances
The peopling of Mindanao mainland and the Sulu archipelago has been predominantly based on ethnic heritage and religious tradition. While it cannot be denied that an admixture of racial stocks has been developed among these people, the basic Malayan is still in their blood. Such strong Malayan identity was made even more enduring through time by the unifying cultural influence of Islam.
