Filipino Tinikling

Filipino Association of Nova Scotia will present Tinikling, a traditional folk dance from the Visayas region of the Philippines. The dance imitates the movement of the tinikling birds as they walk between grass stems, run over tree branches, or dodge bamboo traps set by rice farmers.

The dance is commonly performed at schools and on special occasions, such as the Filipino Independence Day, as a celebration of Filipino culture and Filipino pride.
