The Origin of Condong

The Condong Dance’s history is very thick with Batuan because Prince Sukawati created the Condong Dance Movement. This Condong dance is performed by children from Batuan Village and accompanied by the strains of traditional Gambuh music, which we rarely see in Bali nowadays. With this, we can introduce more to the public how beautiful Gambuh Music accompanies the movement of the Lean Dance. The unique thing that is inserted in the Condong Dance this time is when the dancer interacts with the children who take part in the painting exhibition by giving them the enthusiasm to stay active in learning to paint, and the children answer aloud.

Dynamic Movement

With the exhibition of Rare Rupa’s children’s paintings, the Batuan Village also inaugurated a new building used for the exhibition under the name Batuan Art Space. Symbolically the beating of the Kulkul officially opened the Rare Ripa Children’s Painting Exhibition, the children who took part in this activity were happy while directing the guests to go to the BAturan Art Space Building
