Nelayan dance is one of the classical dances in Bali that have high cultural value. Nelayan dance has unique and varied lexicons to study. Usually, the lexicons in Nelayan dance will be used during dance practice. However, due to the development of the times, the use of the lexicon in the Nelayan dance is decreasing. This study aims to collect the lexicon that exists in the Nelayan dance. This research was designed in a descriptive qualitative form using an ecolinguistic approach. The object of this research is the lexicon of movements in the Nelayan dance, including the cultural meanings of each of the lexicons. The subjects of this study were three informants who had extensive knowledge of the arts.
