Tinikling is a traditional folk dance from the Philippines, performed by jumping over poles while dancing to music.
Tinikling involves two people tapping and sliding poles on the ground and against each other in coordination with one or more dancers who step over and in between the moving poles. Alternating between dancer and “clinker” doubles the fun for students with each new Tinikling style. Tinikling promotes cardiovascular and muscle endurance, as well as coordination and agility for students of all ages. Dances develop movement coordination with every step, while clinkers practice teamwork and communication, creating a team building atmosphere with every routine
Sturdy ABS-plastic jump poles and slide boards feature soft vinyl end caps for safety and nonslip anchoring, making this set extremely durable and easy to use indoors or out. Three connecting sections prevent bowing in the poles and cross bars. Made with convenient pushpins, this set is easy to assemble and disassemble, yet remains durably intact during activities. When not in use, simply disassemble for convenient, compact storage.
DVD features basic techniques, activities, and three routines. CD includes three practice drum rhythms, seven songs with drum accents, and a guide. Different songs vary the tempo of the game to create a range of challenges and excitement.
Set includes 6 pole sections (32"L) and 2 slide boards (27"L). Instructional Guide and Christy Lane's Tinikling Today in the USA DVD/CD (45 min., 2006) sold separately.
