Bicolano Folk Dance

A folkdance is a rhythmic body movement made up of steps that are repeated to form a pattern of routines. These are performed as part of ceremonies, rituals or merrymaking and have become part of the activities in the community. There are no known specific choreographers. The folks just learn them as they grow up and dance them on specific occasions. Then the dance is passed on from generation to the next. Cariñosa

Cariñosa (Spanish pronunciation: [kaɾiˈɲosa], meaning the loving or affectionate one) is a Philippine dance of Hispanic origin from the Maria Clara suite of Philippine folk dances, where the fan or handkerchief plays an instrumental role as it places the couple in romance scenari.

Paseo de Bicol

Paseo de Bicol originates at Oas, Albay. It is commonly known as Paseo de Roxas. Paseo means walking. It is also known as Aurora Festival in Bicol. It is the festival that adults go to a "capilya" and pray to remove the bad luck in their place, while teenagers were dancing around the capilya.

Pantomina

The Bicol Region is home to the Pantomina, a dance widely popular in every town of Catanduanes. Pantomina is Spanish for pantomime, movements imitating the courtship movements of the rooster and the hen. Pantomina Catanduanes shows the ardent pursuit of a lover of his beloved. According to Mr. Ramon Obusan, director-choreographer of the world-famous Obusan Folkloric Group, Pantomina Catanduanes is the best Pantomina version he has witnessed so far in the Bicol region.
