Aafke de Jong, dancer, choreographer and artistic director of DwiBhumi, teaches you the first steps of Balinese dance in the Festival Centre.
The posture and movements are often the exact opposite of western dans styles like classical ballet, modern dance and jazz dance. Balinese dance is mostly directed towards the front of the stage which makes it similar to Egyptian images.
Balinese dance is a performance for people but mainly for gods. it holds a constant tention between joy and religious surrender. This dance is not figurative but tries to portray the inner values of its subject in the language of dance.See also Balinese dance focus @ deSingel
