Experience the culture of the Iban dance through the traditional Ngajat Iban dance.
Ngajat Iban was originally passed down from the Iban tribe to welcome warriors back from battle. It is now performed to receive important guests at longhouses, and to honor the most important harvest festival, Gawai.
In joining our class, you will learn how to greet highly regarded visitors the way Borneo people traditionally would, through an uplifting, fun dance.
