Salimbayan: dance for wellness

Salimbayan: dance for wellness

Salimbayan, which literally means to simultaneously glide or swoop, is an exploratory endeavor in harnessing indigenous music and dance to espouse the physical, emotional and social well-being of the UP Diliman community—faculty, staff, students and alumni. It aims to offer the UP community an alternative avenue to be physically, emotionally and socially fit to face the daily challenges of campus life.

This project highlights the pangalay dance movements, a pre-colonial indigenous dance from the Sulu Archipelago. Traditional musical accompaniment will be used as well as music from various genres. Each session will be guided by trained dance instructors using the Amilbangsa Instruction Method (AIM). This will cover limbering and concentration exercises as well as basic pangalay postures and gestures.
