Tinikling is one of the most popular folk dances from the Philippines and is, in fact, honored as the country’s national dance. But while many Filipinos feel amazed at other Filipinos who know how to dance this complicated (and somewhat dangerous!) dance, they do get more excited when foreigners take on the challenge and dance tinikling!
So, when Dance.com released a video of what appears to be several foreigners simultaneously dancing tinikling over several sets of bamboo poles, the clip swiftly went viral and gained admiration from netizens.
In the video, several people were nimbly dancing over the bamboo poles. It was clear that they had mastered the art of tinikling because their feet easily glided over the bamboo poles and moved across the other sets.
While Dance.com did not caption the post, many believe that the video was taken somewhere in Manila or at some place in the Philippines – can you recognize the landmarks here?
Check out the beautiful movements in this tinikling dance by these foreigners in this video:

Some people believe that these foreigners were not dancing tinikling but another form of bamboo dance from other countries. Hmmmm. What do you think?
