About the event:
Saung Budaya Dance is excited to introduce Indonesian dances and lead a Dangdut Tone Dance Workshop to NAAAP SJ members on May 15th at 10am PT. We will take you on a journey across the archipelagos and showcase Indonesian culture through traditional dance and its transformation to dance fitness based on the folk music of Dangdut. The workshop will conclude with a 45 minute high impact dancercise where members will have the opportunity to work out their abs, arms, hips, and body. We look forward to welcoming you then!
