I still have pictures from my Bali trip which I will post after I sort them out.  Here are some of them.  The most common barong dance in Bali is lion barong which is the symbol of good spirit.  It is probably the most well-known story telling dance.  In addition to barong, there are also women and men who dance and play the traditional instrument. The story narrating the fight of good and evil and will end with the final battle between Barong and Rangda (queen of evil), with the victory of barong over rangda. Rangda runs away, the evil is defeated, and the celestial order is restored.
