The show is at Ubud Palace for sunny days and at the pavilion across the street for rainy days. We came on Friday. Go 0.5~1 hour earlier for front row seats. Ticket price is 80k per person. Show was awesome! The body and eyes moves so beautiful, the clothes were gorgeous, and skills were so high and professional. Big value... More

We went to this dance in December with our two boys, ages 9 and 12. We loved the music, but the dance wasn't great. There were many, many moments when the character on stage seemed to just stand there making minor movements and everybody in the audience, adults included, were visibly bored and confused. The story line was really hard... More

This dance is only available in the morning. Its interesting for the first 5 minutes. There is a flyer explaining the scenario in English but not understanding the dialog during the dances makes it boring and we lost interest after 15 minutes. Morning could be spend doing something else.

Kelod Community Center along Monkey Forest Road hosts a Legong masked dance on alternate evenings. Cost is only about $8 US for an amazing masked dance performance. A full gamelan orchestra plays for the dancers. The first dance, The Pendet" welcomes the audience with those exotic side-to-side head glides and eye movements we associate with Indian dance. After the girls... More

Gong gong gong dart dash country dancing ballet and scary too. Interesting good value and good having the storyline. Interesting to learn more about finer details of the dancing with their beautiful interesting and surprising movements and expression. Opening and bumble bee dances were my favourites.

We went for the Barong performance at Batubulan. We didn't expect much at first though we had to pay an entrance fee of Rp 100k per person. However, it turned out to be a great show, highlighting their tradition in their believe of Hinduism mingled with Animism, their simple faith that good (Dharma) will always prevail against evil (Adharma).

It is a great show bear in mind that you should get there early to make sure that you get good seats which are limited. We ended up standing by a big tree so see what was going on. Bring a cushion, mozzie spray and a rain jacket as you are outside. The dances are well executed and the women's... More
