This qualitative study utilized a cultural memory banking protocol to gather information about the unpublished wedding dance of Antique and capture its indigenous dance ritual form. The informants of this study were old members of the community, the performers, and the married couple who believed and practiced this kind of ceremony. A validated interview guide was used to gather data which were transcribed, summarized and interpreted. Artifacts like wedding pictures and documents of dance ritual presentations were also used to triangulate the results. The ideas of constructionism, collective memory, and socio-cultural theory backed up the thematic analysis of the data. Findings revealed that Sinurog is an integral part of Antiquenos' culture and tradition, and categorically, families' fervent subscription to the sanctity of marriage. Though the origin of Sinurog is uncertain in terms of epochal facts and figures, yet the essence of its abeyance transcends numerical quantity that indicates time and dates. It is a belief that requires ancestral patronage. It is a determinant of blessings and curses, as well as a benchmark of antiquity and seal of distinctive identity. Sinurog encapsulates such traditional practice that is anchored with the mindset that the Divine Providence is necessary to be invoked for guidance and protection in the family life.... Partial abstract.
