Traditional Balinese dance


One of the highlights to my visit in Bali was the traditional dance show. It is so fantastically expressive! 


Intricate finger movements and eye expressions are used to convey the stories behind the dances. Women train from a young age to become Legong dancers, it takes years to master the minute and precise movements. Photos taken in December 2016.

  6. Balinese dancing is unlike any other dance I've seen and the music is amazing, too. Then, come to think of it, the costumes are gorgeous. I can easily imagine that this was a highlight for you.
