Background / ContentEuropeans and their Western culture gained a foothold in the Philippines in the 19th century, turning it into a melting pot for racial and cultural re-invention. Because of this effect, the indigenous Filipinos embraced the change by assimilating the foreign dance traditions into their culture. Spanish Jotas, Flamencos, Fandangos and Polkas, the French Quadrille and the Mazurka were soon Filipinized.
