Abstract

Songkro dance is a new dance that blends traditional and contemporary motion art which is arranged in interesting and unique gestures. Songkro itself is the name of the tool used by sand miners on the banks of the Brantas River, Kediri, and East Java. Songkro is made of woven bamboo that is shaped like a tube that is used as a container to take sand from the Brantas riverbed. The purpose of this research is to find out the form of culture in Songkro Dance. This study uses a qualitative approach. The main informants are the creators of songkro dance and the community that involved in the sand mining process. The techniques of collecting data are interviews and library research. The results of the study show the form of culture in Songkro Dance; Songkro dance conveys moral values of always being hard work, tenaciousness, braveness and loyalty; movements or motions in Songkro dance represent the interactions and social conflicts of sand miners; Songkro dance itself as a physical form of culture or artifact.
