Ubud cultural dance performances have become synonymous with Bali. While some dances are meant to please the Gods during religious rites, performances like the Legong Dance are a treat for visitors to Ubud. These dances often depict tales from Hindu folklore like the Mahabarata and Ramayana. Balinese dances are as spectacular as they are captivating, co-ordinating eye, hands and feet in a series of quick movements. Dancers sparkle in elaborate gold embroidered costumes and head dresses, accompanies by the Gamelan and other percussive instruments that are quintessentially Balinese.
