Legong is a classical Balinese dance, originally it always performs by a pair of dancers who are two young girls that never have menstruation yet. The word Legong comes from a word Leg, which mean slow dance movement in balinese. It is characterised by highly stylised slow movements. Its delicacy is heightened by the fact that is performed by richly costumed young dancers, sometimes only four years old, many of whom retire at the tender age of 18. The word Legong firstly announced to western public was through a silent movie by an American director titled Legong: Dance of the Virgins in 1935 in New York Theater. That movie was made on Bali island in 1933, all cast are from that island of gods natives. However, Legong dance was rediscovered and maintained by Indonesian goverment on early 1960. - Julius Perdana

Legong é uma dança característica de Bali, que tradicionalmente é feita por um par de dançarinas muito jovens, que ainda não menstruaram. A palavra Legong significa "dança com movimentos lentos". essa delicadeza é realçada pelos trajes ricamente decorados das jovens dançarinas, muitas vezes com idades a partir de 4 anos. O Ocidente ouviu falar do Legong pela primeira vez  em 1935, através de um filme feito em Bali, por um  cineasta americano. - Julius Perdana.
