The Tinikling is the Philippines’ most popular traditional dance. All attired in native apparel, the balintawak and barong tagalog, the onlookers cheer as a couple dance, skipping between bamboo poles, imitating the lively movements of the ‘tikling’ birds.

The rich and diverse Philippine culture is often depicted through its traditional dances. This postcard sent by Gene of Wandering Gene is of the Kumintang Dance.
Kumintang – The graceful hand movements from the wrist going clockwise or counterclockwise while dancing. This is the typical characteristic movement of the hands in Philippine folk dances.
This postcard reminds me of the traditional dances that we used to study in school.
Thank you, Gene !
