Description:

When in Bali you simply must view three of the most famous dances in the country. Sanghyang (Trance) Dance, Kecak (Monkey Dance) and the Fire Dance are three performances that will truly make your visit to Bali more special. Taken from the Hindu epic Ramayana, the Kecak dance is perhaps the most dramatic. The dance tells the story of Prince Rama and his rescue of Princess Sita, performed with a troupe of over 50 bare-chested men who serve as the chorus.
There are dozens of different dances - all part of the fascinating Balinese cultures. This tour takes you to the village of Batabulan to see three dances.
Kecak (Monkey) Dance - Performed by a group of at least 50 men who dance in a circle around blazing bamboo torches. Possibly the most dramatic of the 3 dances, it has been taken from the Hindu epic Ramayana, the dance tells the story of Prince Rama and his rescue of Princess Sita, who has been kidnapped by the evil King of Lanka. The chorus of men, who provide the orchestral accompaniment with complex and varied chants that company their swaying movements. The only music to accompany them are the beats of their palms hitting their chests, their thighs, or other parts of their bodies, or their claps, rhythmically accompanied by shouting and chanting. Flickering torches provide lighting and an enchanting atmosphere.
Fire Dance - Where the dancer becomes entranced and is able to dance on hot coals without feeling pain.
Saghyang (Trance) Dance - Traditional performed as an exorcism to promote peace and health within the village.
After the dance performances your guide will be happy to drop you at a local restaurant of your choice, close to your hotel, or back to your hotel.

Oka the guide came to pick me up at the hotel. He even bought some mosquito repellent for me to spread on while watching the kecak dance performed outside. The dance was magnificent and very entertaining.
Oka was very professional. Thank you for a nice evening.

Really enjoyed this tour, the dance place in a beautiful temple, and you got even buy a Bintang! Very good dance, and good information given on the history of it. The fire dance section was particularly exciting. They also took us to a coffee plantation which is next door to the dance and that was interesting.

this was a nice story told thru dance. read the pamphlet before the show so you know whats happening bc they dont tell you. Guy dancing thru fire was ok, but i thought he would stay in it longer or set his wooden skirt on fire. still, entertaining

We were picked up from the hotel and the guide insisted on coming early. He had a driver with him which was a bit odd. We ended up waiting for the place to open for at least an hour. The show was different and also a bit scary with the Fire Dance. It was interesting to see.

It is a long trip to see the show. Plus I felt we were collected early so they could bring us to some shops/craft places to try and get us to buy things. The show itself was interesting
