In legends, Legong is the heavenly dance of divine nymphs. Formerly, the dance was patronized by local rajas. Dancers were recruited from the aptest and prettiest children, today, the trained dancers are still very young. In Balinese dance the movement is closely associated with the rhythms produced by the gamelan (musical ensemble from Indonesia, typically from the islands of Bali or Java, featuring a variety of instruments such as metallophones, xylophones, drums and gongs)
