BALAM Dance Theatre (BALAM), inspired by the opulence and theatricality of Balinese theatre, was founded in 1979 by choreographer, educator, and movement analyst Islene Pinder. The company’s eclectic repertoire presented at the grassroots level educates and entertains audiences through a unique blend of traditional and original works representing diverse cultures and time periods, which appeals to all ages and backgrounds. www.balamdancetheatre.blogspot.com
