Indonesian Performimg Arts of Oregon (IPAO) was officially established in 2011. It started out in 2010 when the initiator and one of the founding members of the group moved to Kansas City where she was actively involved in the Balinese gamelan group and dance troupe.
There are more than 15 dances from Sumatera, Java, Bali and Sulawesi have been performed. Among the big events are World Beat Festival, Beaverton Night Market, Portland Rose Parade, and Indonesian wedding events. IPAO has also collaborated with the live Gamelan Sari Pandhawa of Eugene, Oregon, to perform at several events.
With the motto “promote – share – celebrate “, IPAO has been actively and proudly promoting Indonesian cultures through dance and performing arts throughout Southwest Washington and Oregon, sharing and celebrating teh richness of Indonesian traditions in various events.
