Folk Dances: Jota Cagayana
Posted by Carrie B. Yan on 05/06/2011 03:19 PM

Type:  Spanish Influence
Origin:  Cagayan

This dance originated in Spain and found its way to many places in the islands. Although it is Filipinized in many ways, Jota Cagayana still displays the fire and fury of its European origin. It is performed by the Ibanags situated in the Cagayan Valley. The steps are similar to that of the famous European dance steps such as the mazurka, polka, gallop and waltz.
