PhilCAS presents Sublian as part of our Learn to Dance Series.
Subli is a form of religious ceremony which originated in the barrio of Alitagtag in Bauan where the Holy Cross, the patron saint of Bauan, was found. Formerly, it was danced only in that barrio, and at the front of the Holy Cross, but it is now danced everywhere. It was said that the first dance of its kind was performed by the women. This version we are teaching is only danced by the women.
