Apayao Courtship Dance-Mountain-Igorot Dances

image of apayao courtship dance

This is classified under Mountain and Igorot Dances. It comes from the northernmost section of the Mountain provinces. The couple raise and wave their arms and hands like the wings of a bird in flight, and the ceremonial blanket worn by the woman is lightly wrapped around her. The man's movements resemble those of a fighting cock in the preening, strutting, and flying-off-the-ground gestures.
