When Hip-Hop Meets Kecak

Nine Young Balinese Dancers Win Hearts in New York at the National Dance Institute.

(8/4/2007) As reported on balidiscovery.com, nine young and very talented Balinese dancers have just concluded a month of dance and cultural interchange in New York at the Irene Diamond Summer Institute at the National Dance Institute (NDI).

Through friends at NDI we've been keeping tabs on the young Balinese who have been sharing stages and dance studios with young American dancers, presenting the finer points of the classical Balinese dance, and learning more about contemporary American dance from teachers and fellow students.

By all accounts, the results have mesmerized the East Coast dance community and the audiences who attended the various dance recitals held in the New York area.

Too Good Not to Share

Last week a video clip of the our Balinese kids dancing with their American friends was posted on Current TV. We urge you to download the clip and see what happens when hip hop meets kecak on a New York stage.
