Bali Democracy Forum VI featuring the theme Consolidating Democracy in Pluralistic Society was open in person by President of the Republic of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono accompanied by the Head of State Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah from Brunei Darussalam and Timor Leste Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao in the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), Nusa Dua, Badung, Thursday (Nov 7).
Badung government as the host of the event presented Widyadari new creation dance as the opening dance. The dance involving 10 beautiful dancers managed to amaze President SBY and the delegates by giving applause after the dance. Before showing off their skill, all the Widyadari dancers were briefed first by Regent Gde Agung in order they could present maximal performance in the opening session of the BDF VI.
Regent of Badung AA Gde Agung amidst the provision of guidance also revealed that the Widyadari Dance was a new creation composed by Badung government. “This dance reflects the elegance of the pretty good-looking angels and is always filled with a sense of peace. The sense is expressed by the musical accompaniment and graceful gestures. And this shows humility in greeting the honored guests,” said Gde Agung.
Meanwhile, the Secretary of the Ministry of State Secretary, Lambock V Nahattands, revealed the BDF VI opening dance was very charming and a very riveting dance creation. “By all means, the dance is only facing one direction, but this dance is really spectacular because it is facing two directions, namely the leader and the audience. Similarly, we would like to express our gratitude to Badung government which has hosted the national and international events organized in Badung County. Hopefully, there would be more new creation dances to support the implementation of international events in Bali,” said Lambock. (BTN/bud)
