Baris traditional dance to be revitalized

The Denpasar administration said it would revitalize nine kinds of Balinese traditional dances called Baris, in an effort to preserve the art form.

The nine dances, which used to be performed only for certain religious ceremonies, were displayed to the public, taking center stage at the closing of the Denpasar Festival. The exhibition is part of the administration’s efforts to preserve local culture. The nine dances are Baris Ketekok Jago, Baris Kupu-kupu, Baris Tengklong, Baris Pendet, Baris Wayang, Baris Cina, Baris Sikep, Baris Tamiang and Baris Panah. All of the dances were created years ago based on ‘supernatural guides’ in Hindu temples in Bali. Each of the nine Baris dances has its own characteristic moves, musical sounds, and costumes.
