I am not a professional dancer but I do love dances especially traditional dances. My dad told me that since I was a kid, I love to ask someone or women who were wearing traditional dress in Java to take me with them. So that’s easy for people who wants to kidnap me at that time then. Here, we will talk about beautiful costume in Indonesian dances.
We got more than 3000 different dances from Indonesia. I always respect to people who want to preserve our art tradition and culture. If we are not the one who preserve, then who will preserve the art tradition and culture? I am not a fanatic person about art or culture because I am not the expert also in this field. But I am just trying to respect to the ancestors who have created all the beautiful elegant dances from the movements until the costumes. How could they create such an amazing ideas during that time?
In this pictures, I did creation dance mix between Central Java and West Java. It is beautiful to see and the costume looks like people in Javanese wedding costume. I am just wondered how the ancestors had ideas of using the flowers, all the hair accessories, then wearing combination of fabric for the body.
Actually for some accessories, they got meaning. What makes me amazed is the way the ancestors found it at the first time. There were no internet before. This is something unique and deserve to get respect. I will be happy to dance in Indonesian Traditional Dances as my respect to the traditional art. Anyway, Art is always beautiful.
