Terinai

 

A beautiful court dance from the Northern state of Perlis that is accompanied by the ‘serunai’ (flute). This dance is different from the other court dances as it is primarily performed during weddings and has a distinct narrative which tells of courtship and marriage. This dancers carry lit candles that are masterfully manouered.

There are several dances in the Terinai repertoire such as The Terinai Mengadap, Ketam Bawa Anak and Dewa Raja which is danced by men. Originally there is a strong element of improvisation however as it is now danced by an ensemble, there is a need to set the patterns and movements.
