The results showed that. Tayub dance that serves as a dance for fertility where the waranggana dancing in pairs with males is merely a symbol, which is a woman representing the earth or farmland, and males represent the seeds (rice) in Jwa terms Known as the t erms of the celestial father and Mother Earth, the union between the two in the form of rain that will descend to bring fertility.
