What? WHAT???
No "Tinikling" thread at the Mudcat?!
Something must be done about that!

No, you don't have to be Filipino to have been
introduced to this dance.
In my white-bread Protestant-majority hometown,
the local grade school's Physical Education teacher
would teach us the simplest version of this dance
on the indoor basketball court.

Here are some dancers in the San Francisco Bay area.

There is a standard "Tinikling" waltz-style dance tune.
In this simple video, it is played on classical guitar.

... and with this video,
somebody used a program and went to what looks like a lot of trouble
to show the sheet music
with the traditional tune being played.

I like this video of an effort to show the
traditional 'folkloric' Tinikling dance.

In 1960, I attended a Boy Scout Jamboree in Colorado Springs. A Filipino troop did a demonstration of the Tinikling dance and invited some of us to give it a shot. They went easy on us since we all got our ankles banged the first few times.
When we got home, we taught it to our Canadian troop.

Thanks for the info, keb. I like the music, and I marvel at how the dancers don't run out of breath. They are good!

Didn't anybody else remember having to learn this
in Physical Education class indoors??
in grade school?
