Sayaw sa Bangko is a famous Pilipino folk dance in which the dancers must use good skill and balance as they dance on top of a narrow bench. This dance dates back to before the Spanish colonization of the Philippines, which means it is a purely Pilipino Ancestral dance. Dancers showcase their skills as they dance atop a narrow bench, while constantly trading places. As opposed to competing with each other to stay on the bench, dancers must complement each other to ensure that they do not fall. This dance is usually performed in town fiestas.
