President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will invite Pontianak dancers group to perform the "Gerak Khatulistiwa" or Equator Motion dance at the presidential palace on the independence day commemoration on August 17, 2011.
"I will invite the three dancing groups to dance before the palace on the Indonesian independence day commemoration on August 17," Yudhoyono said at the eighth commemoration of the Society Mutual Cooperation month devotion here on Tuesday.
The president expressed his wish to invite the Pontianak dancing groups after looking on the dance motion performed by three dancing groups at the capital city of West Kalimantan province.
The "Gerak Khatulistiwa" or Equator Motion dance illustrated the natural wealth and cultural grandeur in Pontianak.
The three dances showed the harmony among cultures, especially the Dayak and Chinese cultures.
"That dance is good," said Yudhoyono who was immediately followed by the audience applause.
The president at the moment also told the West Kalimantan govenor Cornelis that the dancers can perform their dancing at the palace.
