What is Malay’s traditional dance?

There are a lot of Malay traditional dances in Malaysia. But, if we have to choose one that really stands out among the other dances in the Malay community, it must be the Zapin Dance. Zapin is a traditional Johor dance that originated from the Middle East. It used to be performed only by male performers but nowadays female dancers are also embracing the dance.

The Zapin dance movements are arranged according to the melodies of the music. The dancers usually dance in a pair - a woman and a man. The Zapin movement requires the dancers to dance in a graceful sway and line with the accompaniment of music and instruments like violin, gambus (short-necked lute) and marwas (bongos).

If you are interested in learning Zapin dance, you may want to look for a dance lesson in Shah Alam.

Lion Dance is a traditional Chinese dance. The dance is synonymous with the Chinese New Year celebration. It is performed as a luck and fortune symbol by the Chinese community. You may even see the Lion Dance performance during an opening of a new business or in competitions.

In the Lion Dance, two performers will be wearing a lion costume. One as the head and another as the tail. Both of the performers will mimic the movement and physical gestures of a lion. The dance movement follows the rhythm of clanging cymbals, beating drums and the noise of firecrackers.

You can easily find Lion Dance lessons in George Town.

What is the Indian’s traditional dance?

Bharatanatyam is the oldest dance of the Indian ethnicities. It is a classic dance that originated in Tamil Nadu. The traditional dance used to be performed by a solo female dancer as part of religious ceremonies. However, over time, male dancers start to get involved in this traditional dance. The dance is usually performed along with classical Indian music.

It is not easy to master the Bharatanatyam dance. It took years of learning and practise to master various hand, feet and eye movements. The Bharatanatyam dance moves emphasise the grace and tenderness of different body movement techniques. There are a number of great Bharatanatyam dance courses in Seberang Perai if you are interested in learning the dance.

Some types of dance are easy to learn and others, not so much. You can learn on your own by just watching videos and all. But, the best is always to have dance teachers. By having dance tutors, they can show you where you make mistakes. Furthermore, it is more convenient and uplifting to have someone to guide you all the way to the top.
