What you'll do

I will welcome you in my beautiful green Balinese tropical garden. We will open our class with a quick meditation, as an offer and respect for the Balinese culture. After, I will give you a 15 mn introduction about Bali's dances and how the dance is deeply woven within its culture. I will talk about how spirituality influences the day by day of the island and its art, how dance is introduced at a very young age to kids. You will be able to ask me any questions you might have. After the introduction, I will dance for you a small part from the “Condong” dance. Then, we will study together, for 40 mn, few Balinese dance techniques, such as the asymmetrical movements from the hips, legs, torso, feet, hands (mudras) and eyes, and how the dance provides our body with a special energy, connecting the dancer with the material and spiritual world.

This is a great form to exercise your body in a very different, creative and entertaining way, connecting yourself with your inner power. The Balinese culture is very interesting, unique and enjoyable!

This experience is perfect for anyone who is willing to learn about Balinese Culture from the comfort of their homes, for groups of friends who want to share something new together or parties and gatherings.

I am so glad I booked this experience! I am terrified of dancing in front of others, but have recently been looking for ways to step outside of my comfort zone. Allegra made me feel so comfortable and has such a kind personality. The meditations at the beginning and end of our time together were very calming. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning about Balinese dance and culture, and highly recommend this experience.

I loved the Experience with Allegra to learn about Bali culture, she knows a lot and share stories in a memorable way, I really felt I travelled to Bali during the session and learned something New and different!! In the background we see tropical plants, hear birds and she wears a tradicional dress. We started with a cultural context, then a meditation session that really set the environment, then she danced and spent the rest of the session teaching and dancing, and somehow I managed to do the movements! I highly recommend to join Allegra!

I just finished my Balinese Dance & Culture class with Allegra less than an hour ago and already told some friends about it - it was unique, and fun. I was specifically looking for an event to take me out of my comfort zone and (virtually) out of my country, and this was a good mix of learning about dance through Allegra's mini lecture and her own dance performance (she's good!), and then having to try it myself. She was very encouraging despite my clear lack of talent and aptitude. I think this event would also be great for teens who dance and want to try another style, as well as adults of any age who are curious. Thanks Allegra!!

This is a lovely experience! Allegra interweaves the spirituality and culture of Bali with teaching the dance itself. She is a delightful instructor, and I highly recommend it!

Allegra's Balinese Dance and Culture Class is an absolute MUST TRY! She will teach you not only about the beautiful culture and traditions behind famous Balinese Dance styles but also seamlessly link it to life concepts such as love, peace, and balance in an inspiring manner. Finding balance is something I believe many of us struggle with on daily basis especially in recent times but this experience will leave you with a new perspective on how to create balance within yourself through physical movement, inner and outer expression, and a sincere gratefulness for the world around us. Allegra is grounded, kind, motivating, and very approachable and even if you are super shy she will make you feel at ease. Please do not miss this experience - give it a go as you will learn so much! Thank you Allegra for your time and for sharing your wonderful talent!

It was a wonderful and special cultural and artistic experience with Allegra. The setting is a terrace outside and the view is beautiful. I could feel Allegra's passion for Balinese culture and dance. It was a relaxing experience and great to both watch Allegra's graceful performance and also try Balinese dancing. I learned more about Balinese dance and how it's woven into the fabric and traditions of society. Highly recommended as a cultural learning experience as well as for relaxation!
