Apayao Courtship Dance-Mountain-Igorot Dances

image of apayao courtship dance
Th APAYAO COURTSHIP DANCE comes from the northernmost section of the Mountain provinces in Luzon. Classified under Mountain-Igorot Dance, 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.
