When a little girl starts learning how to dance, usually she will be taught Pendet dance since it requires simple and basic movements and not to fast tempo. This dance is also called a "welcoming dance" for it is performed at the beginning of an event.
There are two types of Pendet dance, first is the one that is only danced at a temple festival to greet the Gods, and second is Pendet that is performed to mark a ceremonial event such as the end of the school year, anniversary of the youth club of a village, etc. Sometimes it is also performed to welcome government dignitaries. This type of dance is only danced by girls or women.
