Philippine Folk Dance- Rural and Barrio Dances

Perhaps the best known and closest to the Filipino heart are the dances from the rural Christian lowlands: a country blessed with so much beauty. To the Filipinos, these dances illustrate the fiesta spirit and demonstrate a love of life. They express a joy in work, a love for music, and pleasure in the simplicities of life. Typical attire in the Rural Suite include the colorful balintawak and patadyong skirts for the women, and camisa de chino and colored trousers for the men.

These dances are lively and incorporate a deep appreciation for music. Often they include fetes such as balancing jars of oil on the head and arms while dancing gracefully.
