Sanghyang Dedari, a sacred dance from only a few regions in Bali, which is usually performed by two maidens, during a state of deep trance. The dancers themselves are believed to be possessed (kerauhan) by heavenly spirits (dedari).

The ceremony isn’t actually a tourist attraction, rather a performance done whenever farmlands suffer from blight, or in the presence of a disease outbreak. The dance itself is an act to appease the divinities.
