Due to an increased interest in dance and music activities in Peliatan village, it was felt that a specific venue was needed to perform and practice traditional and modern dance, as well as gamelan music. As a result, BALERUNG MANDERA SRINERTYA WADITRA was constructed in Peliatan in 2000. At present, there are five dance and music groups based in Balerung. They are: TIRTA SARI (Semara Pegulingan), MEKAR SARI (Ladies Gamelan Orchestra), GENTA BHUANA SARI (Young Dancers and Musicians), PADMA KUMARA SARI (Children’s Gamelan Group), and PADMA NARA SWARA (Modern Dance Group).
