Ulik Mayang Dance in its traditional form is a dance of worship.
The dancers use 'mayang pinang' (strings of arecanut's flowers).
While dancing, the 'mayang pinang' will be shaked until the person holding it feels that the 'mayang pinang' alives or moves by itself then it is given to another dancer!!!
The dance was once performed to worship the spirit of the sea.
However, nowadays the belief in spirits has vanished and the dance is performed purely for entertainment.
