Where can I find videos for Filipino folkdances?

I highly recommend Reflections of Asia, based near Sacramento, CA.  They usually make the rounds at Filipino festivals throughout California, but also accept phone orders.  When contacting them, you can use me as a reference.

Another possibility would be to contact one of the folkdance troupes or college Filipino clubs near your area for a video copy of their recent performances.

Why don't you add more pictures or video clips of folkdances ?

Pictures:  I do not have much server space to upload pictures for each dance.  Also, I did not want to slow down the pages with too many graphics and images. There are plenty of folkdance company websites out there that do show pictures, but do not provide a background/history for each dance.  This Folkdance Glossary serves as a supplement to those websites.  I usually refer to these other sites for the pictures.  If you are interested in pictures for a particular dance, email me and I'll try to point to you a relevant site.

Video clips:  The same space limitations apply as for pictures.  As I do more research, I'll post links to the websites containing video clips.
