Karo as a tribe living in North Sumatra considers that ergendang which means presenting traditional music and dancing in a social activity called ceremony is very important. But in reality the importance of dance in these activities is not accompanied by the seriousness of the supporters of the ceremony. That's why last year we tried to conduct training for students in a beauty salon. The results are very good, but very limited people who receive training. Therefore, we want to carry out training for Karo youth. The aspects that we train include the patterned Karo dance, the Karo dance with steps that have a structure and the free Karo dance.
