Miss World 2013: Contestants Learn Indonesian Dance

By SANSKRITY SINHA

The Miss World 2013 contestants have been learning a traditional Indonesian dance that they will perform on stage at Sentul International Convention Center in Jakarta, on the pageant’s final day.

The pageant's 63rd edition is scheduled for 28 September and preparations are well under way. The contestants started their preparations in early September on the island resort of Bali, taking part in profile video shoots and a pre-talent show.

At the final of the Miss World 2013 pageant, a total of 131 contestants will perform the sandalwood fan dance, the traditional Indonesian dance in which dancers hold a kipas cendana (a traditional round-shaped fan) while performing.

Contestants learned the steps of the dance on the eve of the pageant’s opening ceremony, which will take place on the evening of 8 September. The dance has been choreographed by celebrated Indonesian choreographer Eko Supriyanto, especially for the event.

According to the organisers, the contestants were very enthusiastic about the dance. They learned fan strutting in typical Balinese dance style.
