Our next dance feature is called Maglalatik. It a mock war dance, that depicts the fight between the Moros and the Christians over the prized latik or coconut meat residue. Maglalatik is a four part performance, the palipasan and the baligtaran showing the intense combat, and the paseo and the escaramusa, the reconciliation.
