Philippines is known for its rich culture and traditions. Evident to its colorful celebrations that can be seen is its costumes, music, and dances. Dances that depict Philippines’ tradition, custom, way of life and living can be seen in the traditional dances and folk dances. Philippine folk dances are as rich as the history itself- which are rarely seen at the present generation. This paper walks through the different dances in the Philippines, the way dances have been propagated, and the proposed framework than can be used in propagation and dissemination of dances through research work.
