A highlight of the highlight was the Liceo Folkloric Dance Group from the Philippines. I’ve seen the dancers 4 times at the festival and 100 times while cutting this video:
I like these mating like dances with simple, very beat accented music. The Filipino girls run across the stage like scared chickens and the guys show off with weapons, animal gestures and animal noises. There’s even a little acrobatics, but always casual and relaxed.
To be totally honest, I am really into this jumping around butt-first, especially at 1:10. Just how sexy is that?
The Philippines are right on top at my travel destination list.
