Miss World 2014: Philippines' Valerie Weigmann will Perform Kadal Herayon for the Dances of the World


Valerie Weigmann will be performing a T'boli dance called "Kadal Herayon" for the Dances of the World in the upcoming Miss World finals in London, England.

'Kadal Herayon' as stated 
in Hiyas Philippine Folk Dance Company, primarily originated in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato and the name translates to 'dance of flirtation'. It is commonly performed by young adolescent T'boli girls eligible for marriage proposal. Gestures imitate high flying birds along with acts of beautification which is of high importance to the T'boli.

Here is a sample video showcasing the 'Kadal Herayon' dance:

I'm pretty excited to see on how will Valerie execute those graceful moves and mesmerize the audience with the beauty and uniqueness of the T'boli ethnic dance.
