Each one is as unique and special as the other. These dances will be performed by the world-renowned FEU Dance Company, who performed during the Cheonan World Dance Festival.

Check out their dance line-up for the performance:

  • IFUGAO DANCE RAGRAGSAKAN- This dance is about Ifugao maidens carrying pots of waters along the rice terrace trails
