She has learned dancing since she was 10 years old, continued her family’s dancing-tradition. She learnt dancing from her grandfather, Mosoa Daeng Olla, who taught her Pakarena and Salonreng. Pakarena is a dance performed in palace by 3 dancers, and salonreng is a ritual dance performed in certain event such as in warding off misfortune ceremony. Maybe she is the only one who able to perform the near-extinction Salonreng.
In her ten, she debuted as palace dancer of Balla Lompoa, Gowa Royal Palace. Being a dancer firstly was unthought-of. She was moved her mother words, “if you don’t learn to dance, then there are no one in our family who could carry on our dancing-generation.”
She is aged now, but she is still an active dancer and teacher of her 4 grandchild as well.
She is loyal to live as a dancer for her passion of perpetuating Makassar dances. Yet, she concerned about the Makassar dances future, because younger generation don’t have any interest in it.
