Abstract
Guel dance is one of the dance performances that comes from the Gayo tribe of Central Aceh. The purpose of this study is to documenting in written text about the transformation of the Guel dance performance to the Munalo Dance. This research departs from the interest of researchers in making Guel Dance as the focus of research because it is considered unique and different from the dance performances that exist among Acehnese people. The background that became the idea of Guel Dance, as the identity of the glorious memories of Gayo people of the Linge Empire, is different from others dance performances in Aceh, which in general aims to preach Islamic teachings such as Seudati Dance and Laweut Dance. Researchers emphasize the analysis of Guel Dance performances on the changes in its form and structure of its presentation, both in textual and contextual form. The paradigm used is qualitative with descriptive method of analysis and multidisciplinary approach using Ethnocoreology Theory as grand theory. The results of this study show that the form of Guel dance performance is a paired dance that changed into Munalo Dance with a form of group dance. Guel dance develops among Gayo people in nobility category called elite culture and Dance Munalo develops among other Acehnese society called popular art.
