sorry rewrite only..


"Bakya" means wooden shoes. They are the common

footwear of the poor in the "barrios". During the rainy

season almost all people wear them. They are made in

different materials, colors, and shapes. This dance is

very interesting and lively. In a playful mood, young

boys and girls are supposed to be teasing each other

rhythmically with their "bakya".

COSTUME. Girls wear "balintawak" and boys "barong tagalog" with red trousers. All have on "bakya".

Tiklos is a Filipino folk dance, is also known as pintakasi, and is similar to the bayanihan. Other than videos of the dance, there is no history or origin found.
