What is tinikling?
Tinikling is the national folk dance of the Philippines.
The dance is performed with two individuals beating two 8' to 12’ long poles, usually bamboo, in a given rhythm.
Dancers move in varied foot patterns through the poles.
*One of the histories of Tinikling: when Spaniards ruled Spain and wanted to punish the indigenous Filipino workers they would have other workers beat a pair of bamboo poles together trapping ankles of the 'misbehaving' Filipinos. To keep from being injured the Filipino's developed rhythms to keep the workers from being further injured.
Another history point: explains how farmers set bamboo traps in the rice paddies to trap local Tikling birds, which would eat the rice seedlings. Children watching how the bird would evade the traps by stepping through the bamboo invented the game!
Tinikling involves coordination, group work and problem solving, sequencing, cardiovascular and flexibility fitness components, as well as being fun!
Physical Education Vertical Teaching: Our older students teaching our younger students, the new skills of Tinikling. In the second video we first teach the students to keep time and maintain the rhythm of the music. Second we teach them how to work with the poles and sticks. Third we look at the steps they will use during the movement sequence. And then lastly we combine the two.
