Tinikling is considered the national folkdance with a pair of dancers hopping between two bamboo poles held just above the ground and stuck together in time to music. Originated from Leyte Province. This dance is in fact a mimic movement of "tikling birds" hopping over trees, grass stems or over bamboo traps set by farmers. Dancers perform this dance with remarkable grace and speed jumping between bamboo poles.
(Cebuano for "flotsam") is a worship dance popular among the people of Negros Oriental. It is a reenactment of the discovery by a fisherman of the image of St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of the town of Sibulan, Negros Oriental. The dance is one of rejoicing and merrymaking that ends in a fluvial procession in the coast.
(Cebuano word for "carried along by the current") is believed to have originated from a ritual dance for a pagan deity who was fished out from the sea. It was later Hispanized and transformed into a dance of worship for the Sto. Niño.
