This is a useful 30 minute insight into Balinese culture. The costumes are bright and impressive and give a good idea of traditionsl balinese costume dress, music and dancing style. Its an interesting spectacle.

We left after 30 minutes. Bad actors, since it’s not really dancing (except for the two ladies). Save yourself 100.000 rp p.p and find something else to do unless you like this kind of torture.

This is the most difficult review to get right. First, I’m no expert on Bali Dance, but that's ok - this is clearly targeted at Tourists. The performance is best summed by the main musician - his hammer strikes the notes with seemingly perfect accuracy...More

For someone unfamiliar with Indonesian culture, it was nice to immerse myself with this hour long performance. The performance opens with song and dance, followed by a five course act show with energetic costumes and acting. Worthwhile checking out. Good for entire family.

Entrance fee is Rp100,000 per pax. Heard from our driver that there is only 1 time slot per day. Go there earlier to get the front seat and a good view. Do go up to the stage earlier as it can get rather crowded once...More

Very average - the guide book states if costumes dirty and orchestra not engaged probably B grade - costumes very dirty- given information and choice we would be unlikely to have attended

This was part of a stop in a day tour and I was disappointed because U thought this was a Bali women dance show. That is my bad for not checking it out first. In any case it was an interesting depiction of the historical...More

So we lasted 20 mins watching this dance. Information: it's 100,000 idr to get into the show, they have handouts explaining the dance in different languages, seating is ok. This place seemed like a tourist trap (as the previous post stated) and is in all...More

This was our first stop for Bali day tour which set us in a very disappointing mood. It was poor show purely staged for tourist who might have paid thinking they will experience a local cultural life. No such thing... best avoided...

Our driver suggested we see this show when, on our way to our hotel from the airport, I asked why the statues around the town/ city were adorned with sarongs. We saw this show the first morning! We were early to arrive so got front...More
