Join us to attend the performance of the most beautiful dances of Bali, among others is the dance of the Legong Keraton or the Legong of the Palace, which is represented several times a week (contact us please) in the royal palaces of Ubud or Peliatan! You will find such beautiful dances like in Ubud or Peliatan nowhere else in Bali as these areas have been the cultural capital of Bali for many centuries.

The Legong dance is often mentioned as the symbol of the grace and femininity among Balinese dances. This beautiful dance is usually performed by very young girls living in a palace under the protection of the king or some princes, and that the reason why they call it the Legong Keraton Dance or Legong of the Palace dance. The King Anak Agung Made Karna, an ancestor of the royal families of Ubud and Peliatan, during meditation for 40 days 40 nights at Yogan Agung temple in Ketewel, has seen celestial nymphs dancing this dance dressed in gold brocade. After completing his meditation, the king then called and collaborated with the choreographer of the palace to create this famous dance. The Legong Keraton dance usually tells a story of the twelfth century, in which a princess called Rangkasari was kidnapped by King Lasem, and when the brother of the princess asked the king to release her otherwise face a war, the king preferred a war.

But on the way to war, the king was attacked by a raven bird symbolizing bad luck and in the end the king Lasem was killed in the war. In this ancient classical dance, the movements of the dancers are intricately balanced with the rhythm of the Gamelan music. A part of this dance, other dances such as Baris Warriors dance, Oleg Tambulilingan bumblebees dance or Mask dance, etc. are also performed (depend on the schedule of every day).
