Name of Dance
Tari Topeng Nikko
I Nyoman Budi Artha S.Sn,M.Si
Dewa Made Brata, Ssn

Nyoman Budiana Ssn created this dynamic and humorous masked dance for grand opening of Hotel Nikko in Nusa Dua.

Niko means humorous or comical in Japanese, and this gave Ir.A.A.Gd.Oka Dalem the idea to create a humorous masked dance to celebrate the opening of the Hotel.
This idea was communicated to Nyoman Budiana, who created the dance, and to Dewa Made Brata, who composed the music. Four or five dancers usually perform this dance, each of them wearing a deferent mask. The masks were made by Nyoman Muka from Mas.
