Eight sections of dance and music which to my uneducated eye were performed with grace style and precision. You can pick up tickets from any of the sellers surrounding the palace - everyone charges the same price of 80k per person. Although get there at least 30 mins early to ensure you get a good seat. Sit directly in front... More

My first suggestion is to get to the Ubud Palace 1 hr. early so you can get a good viewing spot. There are no reserved seats. Eights different dance selections that depict a story. The costumes are beautiful as are the dancers. We loved the hand and eye movements,really a must to see. We were told that the dance troupe... More

It's a traditional dance that combine dance and story telling. Proffesional dancer, traditional music instrument player, lighting and place will hipnotize us to always enjoy the show

I really liked it, this was a little bit of the Balinese culture. The show goes for like an hour and a half and has several different stories played out to the group's music which is very fast and loud, full of clanging and cymbals. The costumes and dance was very distinct

One of the most vivid memories I will keep of Bali - is colours, grace, rhythm, expressions. Strongly recommended (try to get in 1 hour before start).

This performance is held in a variation of places around Ubud. We saw it at the temple complex along Jalan Hanoman. The tickets were 80.000 IDR and our 5 year old went in for free. The music, costumes and drama are fabulous. The Balinese call this a dance, but it's more like a very entertaining play really. Our son absolutely... More

We saw the Friday evening performance at the palace and were deeply disappointed. The performance by the Sadha Budaya Troupe only lasts 1 hr, appears a lot more touristy than previous performances we have attended in Ubud. Several people left early, bored. Don't bother!

Balinese dance is an outstanding world art form and you should see as many performances as you can - ideally in a temple ceremony but if not commercial performances are mostly of a very high standard

We watched this dance in Ubud palace. Enterance fee was 80, 000 Rup. On our tickets it was written that the show time is every Sunday. It consists of 5 different dances and was a good way to become familiar with Indonesia culture. Unfortunately it was over crowded and seats were not enough and were full and we were standing... More
