UGA FSA aims to spread the Filipino culture locally in Athens and also through the university campus. Dances are a big part of how we do that. Kalapati is a word meaning “dove.” The dance mimics the graceful and gentle movements characteristic of dove courting behavior. Kalapati originates from the city of Cabugao, within the province of Ilocos Sur in the northern part of the Philippines. We hope you enjoy this brief but beautiful taste of Filipino culture!
