Overview

Kecak Dance is a form of Balinese Hindu dance and music drama that was developed in the 1930s in Bali, Indonesia.

The dance was created in Gianyar by Wayan Limbak with Walter Spies a great painter from Germany.
They performed this fantastic dance in Europe during their road show trips at that time. The dance is based on the story of the Ramayana and is traditionally served in temples and villages across Bali.
Kecak also known as the Ramayana monkey chant, dance is performed by a circle of as many as 100 performers wearing checked cloths around their waists, percussively chanting "chuk-chu-chuk " and moving their hands and arms.

The performance depicts a battle from the Ramayana, in which the monkey-like Vanaras, led by Hanuman, help Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana.

Kecak has roots in Sanghyang, a trance-inducing exorcism dance.

I had read elsewhere that one of the must-do cultural events in Bali is attending a Kecak Trance Dance. This was a nice way to do it, with transportation and tickets included to take all the hassle out of it. I would recommend bringing some Indonesia currency, as there is a little cafe at the venue selling beer and other drinks. It's one of those experiences that I'm glad I had and would encourage others to do, but I wouldn't do it again. It's a very odd performance. It reminded me a lot of a Kabuki theater performance in Japan. Glad I went, wouldn't do it again.
