As varied are the people of the Philippines, so too are the dances. Dance categorizations range from geographic localization, to socialization functions, to dance influences, and time period. Types of Filipino dance include Cordillera, Muslim, tribal, rural, and Spanish style dances. Jerrah is the most well known kind of dance in the cordillera region. The Banga dance shows the grace and strength of women in the Kalinga tribe.
Women performing the Banga balance heavy pots on their heads while dancing to beat of wind chimes. This mimics Kalinga women collecting and transporting water. Another dance, called Lumagen or Tachok, is performed to celebrate happy occasions. When Lumagen is performed, it is meant to symbolize flying birds and is musically paired to the beat of gongs. Another cordillera dance, Salisid, is the dance to show courtship.
In the Salisid dance, a male and a female performer represent a rooster attempting to attract a hen. Malakas at Maganda is a national folklore dance.

Filipinos have unique folk dances like tinikling where assistants take two long bamboo sticks rapidly and in rhythm, clap sticks for dancers to artistically and daringly try to avoid getting their feet caught between them.
Also in the southern part of the Philippines, there is another dance called Singkil using long bamboo poles found in tinikling; however, it is primarily a dance showing off lavish Muslim royalty. In this dance, there are four bamboo sticks arranged in a tic-tac-toe pattern in which the dancers exploit every position of these clashing sticks.
Dancers can be found trying to avoid all 4 bamboo sticks all together in the middle. They can also try to dance an entire rotation around the middle avoiding all sticks.

They are distinguished by their dialects. Here's their typical tribal houses…. Here's a display of their clothing resembling the native garbs of Bukidnon and Davao del Norte…. Source: flickr. Ifugao History They were once feared head-hunters, like the other tribes in Benguet and Kalinga.
They were once very antagonistic to strangers… always suspecting of them as dominion grabbers. Their anthropological ancestry is unclear. Some scholars say they descended from Malayan immigrants.
Some say they may have come from the Miao tribe of China. This Miao line is interesting. To escape further carnage, they migrated into Indo-China. Some of them may have gone farther to the Philippines… eventually founding a vast mountain redoubt in the Cordilleras. For some strange coincidence….

Six years after burial, the bones are dug up… and a second celebration is held… and a third after another six years.
Ifugao Dance. The tribe has a war dance bangibang traced to periods of past tribal conflicts. It is traditionally held on the stone walls of the rice terraces by men brandishing spears, axes and wooden shields. These men prominently wear headdresses made of leaves.
