Naga is a city in the Bicol Province in the Philippines. The Bamboo dance you're referring to is called "Tinikling" It's name after a bird "Tikling" or roadrunner in English. The bamboo resembles a bird-trap that try to capture this tikling, and the dancers hopping inside and out of the clapping [two] bamboos are the tikling. see web link "Tinikling" on left for a sampler
