Saung Budaya Indonesian Dance Group was established in 2005 when dance instructor Amalia Suryani came to New York City and held dance workshops in the Indonesian Consulate. Our goal is to introduce Indonesian culture through dance and music to the Indonesian-American youths in New York City and more generally, to the wider public.
Throughout the years, Saung Budaya has grown to become a vital part of the Indonesian community culture in New York. A variety of dances from all over the Indonesian Archipelago are taught within the group who have performed around in the East Coast / Tri-State Area. Saung Budaya currently consists of 20 dancers whom are mostly students and young professionals.
