When I lived in the Philippines back in the 1970's, I remember my teacher in Philippine Culture class telling the class of a traditional folk song that was part of the Tinikling's background. Except for one word, I'm certain it went as follows:
- Strike the bamboo poles and lets dance the Tinikling
- Let me hold your hand, Dear, as we dance together
- Hop in with your left foot then hop in with your right
- Everyone's watching you dance the Tinikling
- With your every step I can feel that I love you
- You're a special (?) flame burning deep within me
- Life is like a dream when we dance the Tinikling
- You will break my heart if you leave me my Darling
Should this be added to the article?
Carnosa and tinikling are two very different things. It makes no more sense to merge them, than it would to merge the articles on tractor-trailers and motorcycles. Izuko 15:09, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Tinikling a pre-hispanic dance?
Tinikling is danced through the sound of rondallas and dancers wear costumes like balintawak, patadyong and barong tagalog which are costumes during colonial era, is it still pre-hispanic? Maybe the pre-hispanic side of the dance is the original dance of the Leyte natives and not the tinikling itself because pre-hispanic natives are almost half naked and some wear muslime like costumes. Unlike singkil, it has Asian music for its steps. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:41, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Demo dance photo request

Article deserves its own page
I added an image, a painting by Fernando Amorsolo depicting Tinikling dancers. Tinikling is entirely different from Carinosa. It deserves its own page. I suggest that this article not be merged with the Carinosa page. Dragonbite 16:49, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
- In addition, Carinosa, the dance, should also have its own page, but that one needs expansion. Dragonbite 16:53, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
carinosa: a national dance.....
Carinosa is the national of the Philippines. Even though tinikling is much more popular than carinosa, it is still regarded as the national dance of the Republic of the Philippines.I am discussing this with you all because i am a Filipino. Stevenphil --Stevenphil 22:19, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
The Cariñosa article says it is the National dance of the Philippines while this article also says it is also the National dance of the Philippines, my Filipino teacher told us Tinikling isn't the national dance it is just called the national dance because of its popularity, Cariñosa is officially the national dance of the Philippines. I will remove the first paragraph. - JohnMarcelo 19:22, 9 March 2010 (GST)
Umm... I just wanted to say that every time I see the dance, (I'm fillipena, but I live in american and have never been to the philippines) it is done to three beat music. Also, I thought that it might be cool to mention what happens to the dancers that don't move out of the bamboo poles on time!--22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:03, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
Let's find a video
A video should not have restricted-rights music or choreography. A clip of less than 30 seconds might include some copyrighted music. Ideally it would show a few variations on the theme such as one or two dancers and two poles, dancers with pairs of perpendicular poles, and a group dancing through a line of poles. -- ke4roh (talk) 19:00, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
