LB PCN 31: THE DANCES

 

Takik is a love, or courtship, dance that also originated from the Mountain Province. The takik is varies by region and can be faster or slower, with different movements depending on where you are from. This particular dance is based off the Bontoc region and is commonly performed during the Begnas, a rice thanksgiving festival. It is performed mainly at weddings to give thanks to the god, Kabunyan, for their union and to ask for a blessing. A male dancer imitates a rooster making large gestures to grab the female's attention. The female, which represents a hen, mirrors the male's movements. The beat of the music is lead by the striking of the Solibao (ethnic drum) and the tik tik (two iron rods).
