ANDALUZ

		This dance must have been brought here by the 
	Spaniards from Andaluz. According to the old folks of 
	Janiuay, Iloilo, the first Spanish girls who landed 
	here heard of the graceful dances in their town, and 
	on seeing the lilt of the Visayan girls, they introduced 
	their own, hence the name Andaluz.
