Another equally popular part of the Dinagyang Festival is the Kasadyahan, a series of lively dance numbers with the same historical and religious themes as the Ati contest.
Performed by younger dancers from Iloilo’s schools and barangays, the Kasadyahan’s dances pay homage to Sto. Nino’s saving grace to the Ilonggos.
