This is the ethnographer who documented the dance called

Sampaguita from Ylaya an inland barangay of San Fernando,

southeastern part of Cebu Province. Originally this was a dance

movement interpreting a song about the delicate Cebu lass who is

compared to the stems and petals of the "manol" (also called

sampaguita - English -= Persian Jasmine). The movements of the

dance suggests subtle flirtation. My informant Manang Clarita

Natinga first performed the dance through the request of my

anthropology student...
