The Dance of Pagbati is hundred year tradition in the town of Ibaan in Batangas. This happens every Easter Sunday after the traditional Salubong and Dagit. The dance itself is naturally performed in quick tempo to commemorate the happiness felt for Christs' Rising. The Pagbati is danced by one lady who acts as the kapitana and two male escorts.
This years Kapitana is Miss Giselle Ann Cayetano.
One of the little angels who performed the "dagit".
The dance started with a bow to the audience and to the risen Lord.
During this day, most parishioners normally wake up early to attend the early mass and be able to watch the Salubong and Dagit and the Pagbati afterwards.
