Learn New Dance Moves at 800 year old festival

The amazing Ati-Atihan is the Philippines’ wildest and best Mardi Gras, a week-long street party that ranges from dawn to dusk, peaking on the third Sunday in January. Honoring Santo Niño (an image of the infant Jesus), it is a wetting of the head like no other, a religious celebration cloaked in very secular sequins. The elements of Ati-Atihan date back to the 13th century, when a group of light skinned Malay immigrants from Borneo chose to show their regard for the local Ati people by painting their faces black, singing and dancing in thanks for the land and food that was offered to them. Today, in keeping with its origins, participants in the main parade paint their faces with black soot and wear costumes that would not look out of place in a Rio samba school.
