Exotic Bali dances

No trip to Bali would be complete without seeing some of the island´s many colorful traditional dances. We will head to the countryside and visit the famous art village called Batubulan where we will enjoy a variation of cultural fascinating dances! Feast your eyes on the special Bali Kecak Dance. The modern performance of Kecak dance is a sensational sight to behold. Hundreds of men sit in a circle with a flickering single oil lamp in the middle. ''Cak - Cak - Cak'', the chant begins and the men start dancing and swaying to the rhythmic reverberation of their own voices. Hands raised to the sky, bodies shaking in unison, the chorus performs the highly structured piece of vocal music for about an hour. This unique dance holds the title of being the most popular Bali dance. Come and see for yourself! A special highlight is the Bali Barong Dance: ''Lord of the forest'' and magical protector of Balinese villages, the Bali Barong dance is a mythical, shaggy half-dog, half-lion creature, with a long mane, fantastic fangs, and bulging eyes. The Barong's opponent is Rangda, the evil witch who rules over the spirits of Darkness. The Bali Barong dance epitomizes the eternal struggle between good and evil. The fight of Barong and Rangda is also a topic of traditional narratives performed in temples and takes various forms. And once again, good - Barong - will reign over evil. The legong dance also requires a special mention as you may be captivated by the intricate finger movements, complicated footwork, and expressive gestures and facial expressions. Legend has it that a prince of Sukwati fell ill and had a vivid dream in which two maidens danced to gamelan music. When he recovered, he arranged for such dances to be performed in reality. Now you can experience a fantastic performance and be truly entertained. Apart from these three important dances you can also admire other dances such as the fire dance, where the dancer becomes entranced and dances on burning coals. After the dance performance there is the opportunity to sample delicious fresh grilled fish at a beach restaurant in Jimbaran (please mention this to our staff at the time of booking.) Free transport from the restaurant to your hotel is optional. This fascinating trip to the Batubulan village is essential on any holiday itinerary for those who love history, culture, beauty and music.
