Conservation of Cultural Values in Construction Salendang Dance as a Heritage of Puti-Puti Tarusan


The preservation of the cultural values of Shawl Dance is carried out through rearrangement using construction methods. Because this dance had experienced extinction, restructuring was carried out. Restructuring was carried out to provide new colors to produce a definitive and innovative form of Selendang Dance both in terms of movement, floor patterns, music and costumes. The Research & Development (R&D) method is carried out descriptively and evaluatively using the Borg and Gall (2003) model which is modified by conducting preliminary research, investigation, observation, performance/teaching demonstrations, interviews, discussion and evaluation. Implementation of the Selendang Dance construction method through demonstrations, product trials, evaluations, work revisions, confirmation of innovative presentation methods. The arrangement of the structure of the Selendang Dance is carried out through the narration of a descendant of Puti-puti who is still alive. Then it was agreed to restructure or rearrange the construction of the Selendang Dance in a way: (1) strengthening the movement motive which had been disjointed due to extinction. (2) developing a performance model for the Selendang Dance from monotonism to a more attractive and dynamic provan form, so that it has selling points for the performing arts community. The form and structure of the dance still refers to the cultural values of the descendants of the Puti-puti Tarusan as the heirs to the selendang dance.
