About Modero Dance
Modero is a community based dance company that was founded in 2011. Sinta decided to start her own dance company after her trip to Poso in Central Sulawesi and consulted with her sister Diana. Her sister gave her blessing and her brother Igor Saykoji designed her logo complete with a Pamonian dancer wearing the traditional Pamonian outfit called Tomboli and then Modero was born. Sinta’s vision is to combine traditional and modern dance disciplines. This fusion brings the best of both worlds in energetic & intricate choreography.
Modero started in the city of Philadelphia with only 4 dancers, Amelia Laytham, Whitney Postman and Katherine Antarikso. Modero performed in many different community gatherings, city of Philadelphia events, Andrea Clearfield’s legendary salon, Laura Cohn’s From Bali to Bala Annual Gift Show to a few local Latin Showcases. Modero dancers has grown over the years and now consist of 20 dancers as young as 4 years old and as old as 67 years young. Modero has been recognized to be the Indonesian culture torch bearer in the city of brotherly love and have performed in many prestigious events such as the World Festival of Families during the Papal Visit in September 2015, Philadelphia Philles games in 2015 and 2016, Ted@UPS Talk on September 15, 2016 in Atlanta Georgia (SCAD SHOW) and more.
