Spirit of Bali (WA)

Cultural Infusion

Spirit
This is an immersive experience where students learn about the mythology of Balinese culture through music and dance. Students will learn the origins of symbolic movement in dance and try the steps for themselves. The presenters can introduce rice basket weaving, Balinese singing and Balinese language learning on request.

Students will learn the tradition and culture surrounding the colourful Cendrawasih dance. Cendrawasih is named after the tropical Birds of Paradise from Indonesia's eastern most province, Papua.

The dance represents the freedom enjoyed by these beautiful wild birds of the forest while they fly and splash in the water spring. The dance depicts the courtship and is performed by two female dancers. Students will be taught the origin of the dance, the meanings and significance of dance in Balinese culture, and learn the basic steps. Basic Indonesian language used in the dance will also be taught.
