Legong dance

From a quick sketch I did at the Barong dance on our cultural tour. The two Legong dancers mimic each other in synchronized movements snapping their heads from side to side. They are quite beautiful and traditionally quite young. I told Jerry and Pak Astika it reminded me of voguing. They both gave me that "what" look. You know Madonna, guys.
