Traditional dances are dances that still reflect traditions, customs and religious beliefs retained in near pristine form which could offer valuable club in today's search for authentic roots of pre-Hispanic Philippines. It is disappointing to note that from among the different dance groups/companies in the Philippines, there is but only one Yogad dance included in their repertoire which only the Balanban. This study hopes to boast the morale of the Yogad tribe so as to make them proud of their own cultural identity. It aimed to contribute to the repertoire of dances, which have been started through the pioneering work of Francisca R. Aquino, which provided source of materials for schools in the field of dance as well as in the allied-disciplines, which needs better understanding of our culture. The main purpose of this study was to analyze, record and notate the unpublished traditional dances of the Yogads of Isabela in order to preserve them for posterity and for instructional purpose.
