244 pages2 hours


“I know of no other work that succeeds beautifully in weaving together a history of the development of Filipino folk dance over the twentieth century, an outsider’s insider’s account of one of the top two folk dance companies in the Philippines, and a sensitive, wide-ranging reflection on how a ‘foreign’ (in this case, Japanese) dancer learns to become Filipino in bodily movement and sensibility.” 

— From the Foreword by Reynaldo C. Ileto
