Balai

 

This dance is related to worship of the padi spirit or semangat. The dance is performed by village girls in Terengganu.

The movements in the dance reflect the life of the paddy farmers. A colourful umbrella is placed in the middle of the stage, and the girls dance around the umbrella which symbolises the spirit of the paddy.

During the dance, a number of farming utensils are brought along such as hoe, winnowing material, farmer's hat and others. Singing often accompanies the dancing.
