Panji Semirang, A Balinese Dance


I learned Balinese dances back in my elementary years from a Balinese woman living in my neighborhood. The Panji Semirang dance was the second dance I learned after Pendet, but I have always liked this dance for I have read the story.

Panji Semirang follows the life of Candra Kirana, a princess who becomes a victim of slanders made up by her step sister. She runs away from her country, disguises herself as a man and builds her own kingdom in the midst of forest. She also wins back the love of her life. It is sort of women empowerment success story :).

Definitely the kind of dance I'd like to do when feeling down in the dumps. Have a lovely day, dearies!
