Dance is the Philippine's best-known cultural export.

Ever since the Bayanihan Philippine Dance Company (now the country's National Folk Dance Company), the Filipinescas Dance Company, and the Far Eastern University Folkloric Dance Group captivated world audiences in the 50s and 60s, Filipino theatrical dancing has never been the same.

We had a dance culture all our own even before the West took grip of the country's soul and national psyche. First by Spain in 1521 and then by the United States in 1898.

Since then, traditional patterns of society in art and culture have been eroded.

Tenaciously hanging on to theirs, ethnolinguistic groups keep dances as part of their rituals.

This being the case, Filipino artists and scholars have consistently and consciously attempted to re-discover, re-define and document their cultural history.

A continuous review of and digging into sources of available information on the country's art, culture and traditions has enabled a better appreciation of the Filipinos quest for pride in national identity.

One great source of the country's cultural tradition is dance.

This lavishly illustrated book surveys dances in the Philippines--from the dances of the ethnolinguistic groups to the current ballroom dance craze. A sequel to the author's Philippine Dance: Mainstream and Crosscurrents (1978), this 238-page tome traces the progression of dance in the Philippines, from the Spanish era to the present.
