Puspa Mekar (Lambang Sari), (also know as Pendet or the Welcome Dance). This is a ceremonious, traditional dance in which offerings are made to purify the temple or theater as a prelude to ceremonies or other dances. Pendet is typically performed by young girls, carrying bowls of flower petals, handfuls of which are cast into the air at various times in the dance. Pendet can be thought of as a dance of greeting, to welcome the audience and invite spirits to enjoy a performance. The dancers should be unmarried women by virtue of the fact that they serve as offerings.
