Summary Documentary on the role of dance and trance in Balinese culture, with special attention to children's learning and participation. Viewed in contemporary footage and in films made by Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson in the l930s, dance is depicted as an important component in Balinese education, beginning in early childhood and continuing in the public schools and as an after-school activity. Trance dances, such as the kris dance for adults, are examined as an indicator of the intimate relationship of Balinese dance and religious practice
