from the Philippines ( looks very similar to what I did with Pentjak Silat in my younger years; martial arts was to be performed on music)

Followed by 2 exhibition performances from Indonesia as performances are also accompanied by music.

Back to the shaska:

First let me explain about a very interesting traditional dance in the Caucasus : the Lezginka.

Interesting because it is not only cross-border but also cross religion and centuries old. You name it ( Dagestan, Chechnya, Ossetia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, the Cherkess and Georgia), they all dance it
It is both slow and fast in which the female stands for grace and purity, hency portrays a swan gliding across the water in her dance movements.
Whilst the male is the protector, ruler of the sky and claims the territory and portrays an eagle. Powerfull and fierce.

A nice example is this one :

As with all dances it developed / evolved from a wedding dance to an identity dance to show strenght and pride (remember the eagle...) and became a seperate or single male dance as well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6sYGTpaacA

but the Caucasus has also strong women, so some don't dance like a swan but...

(poor husband...)
or look at this lady at 0:53

as for the shaska: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvORvTfCDH0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOEmMbiKNrs
it seems sadly some of the films have been removed or changed to private ...
to keep the examples still available for the future, I found sone replacements in which the ladies move like swans and the men as eagles around them
