Pandanggo Sa Ilaw – A Candle Dance

on December 31, 2012

CandleDanceThis beautiful card comes from Filipino Sabrina. She tells me that the dance of Pandanggo Sa Ilaw is very famous in the Philippines. It involves balancing lit oil lamps on the head and both hands of the dancers whilst gracefully dancing. Sounds very VERY tricky! Sabrina says she tried it in 6th grade and the candle on her head fell on the floor and broke! Haha! Great story! Love this card!
