THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE TWO DANCING STARS OF BALI In step, time and posture, the Bali dances resemble somewhat those of Siam and Cambodia. Almost from infancy, the girls are rigorously trained, and they usually retire to village life after the age of 12. The average religious dance lasts from 40 to 50 minutes. BALI HAS NO BLONDES These 17 girls, chosen at random without regard for caste, from a near-by village, are average examples of Bali's erect, well-formed womanhood. They are of a light bronze color, and have straight or wavy dark hair.
