The "taddok" is the native dance of Kalinga.
The men beat gongs as they skip their feet with the tempo and dance around.
The women dance the "tanggi"; hands wide open and at shoulder level while they skip too to the tempo of the gongs.
They dance round the plaza and may perform certain dance formations to add variety to the otherwise monotonous steps.
The taddok is usually performed during festivities and fiestas.
They also conduct taddok contests to make the festivity livelier and well participated in.
The native folks wear their best costumes and create different variations of the steps to win.
The picture above is of young men having fun with their "costumed" peers.

I'm happy to announce that I've earned $12.54 as of today at the MyLot forum.
I spent just a few hours after work at MyLot but I'm satisfied with my earnings. I have never earned more in other PTC sites or money making sites.
I don't even have referrals, now if you'll sign up and be active, then I'll be earning more.
Most MyLotters are very intelligent people and I find my discussions well replied to and commented on. There are several categories that you could discuss.
It is a very satisfying venture because I got to do what I enjoy and earn at the same time.
Sign in and join in the fun.
