Dance in Bali

What is Balinese Dance? It is an expression of the human soul which is realised through movement of all the body in a beautiful way, accompanied by music and rhythm based on the character and theme of the dance. In Bali, the art of dance finds its foundation in ceremonial dances which are always connected with rituals, such as those to the gods, ancestors and the forces of nature. There is no word for ‘art’ because art is considered to be a natural part of everyday life and is never specifically verbalised as one word. Balinese translated the word dance as ‘sesolahan’ and a dancer is referred to as a ‘pragina’. Balinese dances are intimately connected with the surrounding environment. Nature has been a source of inspiration to composers and choreographers resulting in many different movements. Apart from nature, daily human body movements have also been added to the extensive vocabulary of Balinese dance, adding to its scope and beauty. Balinese dance is very unique, dynamic and highly stylised. A dancer must be able to move every part of their body in a dance, from head to toe. - See more at:
