“Folkloric dance is the history of the people in the movement. In some cultures, pale fragments of it survive centuries of invasions and diasporas. In the Philippines, folk dance is a strong and enduring indigenous expression.” (text from…/philippine-folk-dance-history)

Dance as a performing art form not only expresses creative bodily movements but it also reflects the way of life and emotions of people presented in an artistic way to communicate ideas, feelings and experiences.

#NationalLibraryPH would like to present the selected various folk dance forms that can be found in the library’s collections during this month-long celebration of the Art’s Month.

Come browse the NLP collections while dancing!
