A contemporary creation, the Lenggang Nyai is performed by either 4 or 6 girls. Lenggang Nyai expresses both the gracefulness and vivaciousness of the Betawi woman.
Created by Wiwik Widiastuti in 1998, choreographer from Yogyakarta, the Lenggang Nyai has become a popular part of the Betawi dance repertoire and is often shown at art and tourism events overseas.
This dance has elements from the Cokek and the Mask dance and distinct Chinese influences. Wearing bright red or green dresses and Chinese headbands, the girls sway their body, hands, and feet with graceful and brisk movements.
Another version called the Tari Sembah Nyai, created by Dadi Djaja is danced to welcome guests, following Malay dance movements.
