Recently I focus teaching the children on how to use folding fans (Kipas). The students usually bring a fan that they get from the souvenir shop. But in today’s rehearsal they use a special fan for dancing.

This dancing fan is different by size. Its handle is three times thicker than a simple souvenir fan, and heavier too.

The older students who have been practicing handling the fan improving their skills, as they get more opportunities to dance the Rejang Renteng dance that using a fan.

In the future I want these little girls to inherit the Legong Sri Padma, a new Legong dance which was created by f and m . For the difficult movements, it will need a special training and a hard work like the “Kayang” movement (turning the upper body like a shrimp warping posture). I will teach them the best!!

The younger aged students are holding a large fan. They will always keen to follow the older friends movement.
