Balinese Temple dancer at Tari Barong Dan Keris, Jalan Raya, Batu Bulan (Batubulan), Bali, Indonesia

Balinese dances are a very ancient dance tradition that is a part of the religious and artistic expression among the Balinese people. In Hinduism, dance is an accompaniment to the perpetual dissolving and reforming of the world. In Bali there are various categories of dance, including epic performances such as the omnipresent Mahabharata and Ramayana. Certain ceremonies at village temples feature a special performance of a dance-drama, a battle between the mythical characters Rangda, the witch representing evil, and Barong, the lion or dragon, representing good. Bali dancers learn the craft as children from their mothers as soon as they are born, in the womb they are played the Balinese music and are taught to dance with their hands before they can walk. Official training as a Bali dancer starts as young as 7. In Balinese dance the movement is closely associated with the rhythms produced by the gamelan, a musical ensemble specific to Java and Bali. Multiple levels of articulations in the face, eyes, hands, arms, hips, and feet are coordinated to reflect layers of percussive sounds.
