Saman Dance Competition

On last February 19th, me and my saman team were following Saman Dance Competition for the first time. Saman is a traditional dance from Aceh. FYI, UNESCO officially already recognized this traditional dance as an intangible element of world cultural heritage during a session in Bali on last November 2011. It's been a honor for me to learn this unique dance from my country.
The competition that we follow is a small competition. Because it's our first time, our coach just want us to know how's the atmosphere of saman competition, just for the first experience. So next time we follow another competition we're already know how it is, the atmosphere, the straight-face of the jury, the stage and many more which make us not too nervous.
Alhamdulillah we got the 4th place for this competition :)
And these are our photos
