Legong Dance, one of the Balinese traditional dance. I had the opportunity to enjoy this performance during my last trip to The Island of Gods-Bali. The dance performances I watched was at Cafe Lotus, Ubud.
It was a Saturday night, based on the schedule the performances of the night was Legong Dance by Gamelan Chandra WiraBhuana. Gamelan means traditional musical ensemble in Indonesia. Legong Dance is a type of dance for royal people. It is a refined dance with intricate finger movements, complicated footwork, expression gestures and facial expression. Anyway i found that the facial expression can be said the soul of the whole performances. When the performances finished , the only things that left in my mind are neither the dance moves, nor the very distinctive and precised finger movement, nor the overwhelming gamelan musical instrument performances but it is the over-emphasize facial expressions.
