Pasiguin is a frolicking dance representing fishes getting out from torn fishnets, locally called sibot in Capiz. The dance is among the discoveries of dance researcher Petronila Suarez. It was presented by Crisostomo Barerra during the 1979 Annual Philippine Folk Dance Workshop held at the Folk Arts Theater in the CCP Complex.

There are misconceptions that the dance has to do with the Pasig River, but it does not.
