Fine Arts Academy students learned Tinikling, a traditional Philippine Folk dance, in Anna Falcon’s PE classes this year. Fine Arts Academy students learned Tinikling, a traditional Philippine Folk dance, in Anna Falcon’s PE classes this year. 

Students use elastic bands and switch between jumping with their feet apart and together to simulate the movement of the wooden poles that are used in traditional Tinikling.

“Clinkers” work together to move in sync, promoting rhythm and teamwork. The activity also teaches hand coordination and foot speed.

The White Settlement ISD Education Foundation awarded Falcon an innovative teaching grant to implement the program.
