Cultural Shows

Much of the Burmese theatrical arts have been influenced by U Po Sein, one of the greatest dancers of all time. He started the dancing of the Jatakas -- the stories of Buddhas several lives before he reached Buddha hood. Before his time, the Jakatas were danced only by puppets for humans were too sinful to perform such holy stories. However, Po Sein was so sincere in his act and his religion that he was allowed by the Sangha to dance the stories.

There are several basic dance moves and postures an aspiring dancer has to learn. Chin up, chest out, bottoms up, knees bend is a strict to rule to follow by. In addition, a smile has to be always on the face, unless otherwise required by the particular dance. Burmese dance requires the movement of every body part that one has. From the eye to the chin, from the shoulders to the fingers, and from the waist to the feet. There can be lively music that requires much jumping, or there can be classical music that requires much grace. Indeed, although at a glance, the dance may look easy, learning it can prove to be hard.

As modern popular music and culture penetrates into Burma, the Burmese theatrical and performing arts have decreased in popularity among the Burmese youths. However, those who know the value of the Burmese dances can appreciate the beauty they depict. The Burmese dances tell a long story that goes hand in hand with the Burmese history.
