Abstract:
The study focused on the interest of grade 7 students in learning folk dances in physical education classes in three (3) secondary public schools in Cebu, Philippines. This study was a qualitative research design using a thematic analysis. The fifteen (15) participants in the study were purposively selected using the data saturation method. The result of the study yielded six findings, these are; (1) Learned at school, (2) Contributes to a healthy lifestyle, (3) It shows culture and tradition, (4) It is an old dance, (5) Promotion and Involvement, and (6) Social Well-being. The study revealed that the majority of respondents agreed that they had learned how to dance from their physical education professors. They learn the fundamentals of the dance as well as its purpose. The school plays a major role in letting the students experience and appreciate Philippine folk dances. The study recommended that folk dances must be emphasized in physical education classes so that the upcoming generations will remember and appreciate how our ancestors celebrate life through dance.
