After talking to the locals I learned that the kacek dances are not commonly performed. Too bad, we would love to have seen one.

I attended this activity as part of a group tour. It was interesting but honestly didn't have much of an idea as to what on earth was going on the entire time.

Attended the Kecak fire & trance dance on a recent visit to Ubud. Wonderful to experience the traditional and culture of bali. The troupe was passionate about their art and delivered an amazing performance.

This was truly a fantastic experience. We had seen Thai and Balinese dances and didn't think this would be much different. But I was really different! We were totally caught up in the activities on stage and had never seen anything like it before. See the Kecak dance if you can. Barbara and Edward Stone Dallas, TX

this is a traditional dance performance that really is worth the effort to go and see. Probably the most exciting of all the dances to see. Highly recommended.

Very impressing! Although there were tons of tourists it felt like a little adventure. All these guys in kind of Kecak-trance and the beautiful costumes. Hanoman himself was there :-)

Singing and dancing was beautiful, but after a while it was getting a bit boring. It was hard to follow the story also (not really clear to us). But it was nice to see though.

This is a dance where you really need to read the act descriptions given when you purchase your tickets otherwise you really don't know what is going on. The dance show was okay, kind of dragged on and don't expect real dancing as their definition of dancing is slow movements. The highlight was the fire but that is like near... More
