Whenever I hear the gongs, I tend to dance. This is because this is our native dance in Kalinga. The gongs provide the music and the steps are very simple. For women. you just raise your hands wide at shoulder level and skip with the gongs. The men in return beat the gongs and skip too to the beat. For the classical dances, I like chacha or tango the best, because the steps are very simple and easy to follow. I'm not really a good dancer. What dance do you find interesting? What makes you dance? For more of "taddok" (native dance) visit this site: http://theclamorofkalinga.blogspot.com
