Ma-a NHS Ready For Indak Indak


The MNHS dance troupe is gearing up for their participation of the DepEd sponsored Indak Indak sa Kadalanan dance contest during Kadayawan Festival. This time around, only dance troupes from Davao City are allowed to join the contest.

Kuya Sauro, the trainer of MNHS dance troupe, told me that the PTCA will cover all the expenses in their participation. It’s the fourth time the MNHS participated in the Indak Indak sa Kadalanan. In 2002, they placed 2nd in the Indigenous Dance Competition. What are the chances of winning for our entry this year? Kuya Sauro is not expecting much, “this is a revived dance troupe after it is disbanded 2 years ago and the dancers are young and inexperience” he said.

Participants will showcase their stuff at the major thoroughfares in the city this August 18 starting 8 in the morning.

Prizes at stake:
1st – P50,000
2nd – P30,000
3rd – P20,000

Good luck Guys!

They will represent Aeta tribe so they will be wearing body paint as costumes.

If they win they will add more musical instruments for the dance troupe.

Young dancers from Ma-a NHS, it is the first time since 2004 MNHS dance troupe participated in Indak Indak.

    Maa National High School joining the contest in Indak-Indak sa kadalanan in the Kadayawan Festival I wish they will win the contest(we will win the contest) and do there best. Last school year I’ve joined the dance troupe, we join the MIDF and many contest in davao and we have show in CAP but we did not joined the Indak-Indak sa kadalanan but now the Ma-a National High School have joined. I’m so proud that our school joined the Indak-Indak sa kadalanan. I hope we will win in the contest if we will not win still they do there best to perform. I will pray for them and God Bless them. Good Luck to them.

    Good day! I am one of the participant in Indak2x sa Kadalanan from Maa NHS. It waas way back 2003 and i was just a 1st year student yet so many moves I had learn. Sir Sauro for me is a very good and loving instructor. All he want is to teach his dancers how to dance, with appropriate emotions of course. Even the musicians, though the musicians don’t want to, still he wants them to learn the moves.

    By the way, there many factors affecting the performance of a dancer, not only for the dancer itself but as a whole group/troupe of dancers. I will just site those that are very important. These are some of the factors.

    Time. To have enough time would lead to good performance and enough preparation for the final dance.

    Focus. With great concentration to the stepping (with proper application of emotions) would also lead to good performance and catch the attention of the judges.

    Number of participants. Many participants would make the presentation better compare to lesser number. This is to divide the role of each character well without having a participant with two functions.

    Attitudes: Good attitude will help the instructor to teach and polish the dance steps well with the whole presentation as well.

    Good dancers: This means that the participant must have a good body movement and can memorize the stepping quickly and never forget it immediately.
