Condition, rhythm vital with this dance PDF Print E-mail

Fans at the Dec. 12 Chase Co./Ogallala games were entertained with a dance that requires both condition and rhythm. P.E. teacher Jodie Schuller brought several of her fourth grade students to demonstrate Tinikling, the national dance of the Philippines. In English, Tinikling means “bamboo dance,” imitating the movement of the tikling bird as it walks between grass stems or steps over tree branches. It’s not easy for students, Schuller said, as the pole runners have to keep a good count and steppers must be in shape and have rhythm. “It’s fun trying to put it all together,” she said. Students showing their skills, above, included, from left, Kylee Wiest, Addison Robinson, Zach Herbert, Krystal Smith and Ali Cochran. (Johnson Publications photos)
