Kecak Dance is usually referred to as "Cak" dance or fire dance.
It is a mass performance or entertainment dance and tends to be a dance performance, which is drama and dance because it all portrays the role art of "Puppet play" such as Rama Sita and is not specifically used in Hindu religious rituals such as worship, rituals and other ceremonies.
The "sacred" forms in the kecak dance are usually shown in terms of obedience or trance, namely the immunity that is occult so that it is not burned by fire.
