Philippines prides itself for its deep appreciation for art, fashion, music and food. Filipinos celebrate their culture through folk music and dance, telling their history and preserving traditions. The dances from the Philippine islands represent a myriad of stories from the mountain provinces of the Northern Luzon, to the rural lowlands of the central region of Visayas, all the way to southernmost island of Midanao. Such dances are the popular “Tinikling” from the rural lowlands, the Spanish-influenced “Jota Panderetas”, the elegant “Singkil”, and the skill based dance of “Banga-Salidsid” among many others.
