One of the cultural treasures that attests the close association of the Filipinos with the biodiversity in the environment is in the area of Philippine dance. Our dance culture in the different region of the country can best exemplify the challenges and the triumphs of our people. Tinikling, a dance using bamboo, is our national symbol representing the challenges in the farm as experienced by the rice farmers. Bamboo is essential in the Filipino lives with its numerous uses. Leaping, hopping, skipping are prevalent movements in Tinikling. Other countries, a 4/4 tempo is used but in the Philippines we sustain the use of the 3⁄4 tempo. There is a need to explain fully the variation for better appreciation. This current paper would like to 1) describe the different characteristics of the dance movements; 2) compare the distinguishing characteristic of Philippine tinikling with other countries, and 3) provide interest in dance education and dance culture at the community level. Secondary data of published dance notations were used for the analysis. Being a dancer and a dance teacher helps the movement analysis to be done. Dance educator has to awaken the interest of people by re-introducing exciting and authentic movements which feature the educational, functional and cultural values of dance using bamboo implements.
