The Takik is a Bontoc courtship dance performed by a man and a woman. At least 5 other male dancers accompany them, providing the music and rhythm for the dance. They line up, starting with the head gong-player, behind the male dancer. The line of dancers form circular or spiral dancers, with the head gong-player usually displaying more elaborate steps than the accompanists behind him.
