Sabalan Lulay

The dance "Lulay," like the kuratsa, jota, pandango, and polka, is performed in many parts of the Philippines. This dance originated from Malamig barrio of the town Gloria, Oriental Mindoro. It is part of a wedding ritual which has four phases: sabalan, pamalaye, sabog and dapit. The dance begins with the gentleman dancing around his partner as she eventually gives in to dancing with him.
