Program Description:

Experience Bali Through the Performing Arts

This intensive program will introduce students to Balinese society and culture with a focus on the performing arts. Through living in a group homestay in a rural banjar (neighborhood) near Baturiti village in the island’s mountainous interior, students will be able to experience Balinese traditional life first-hand. Hands-on study of traditional gamelan (percussion orchestra) music and dance will be enhanced by guest lectures and demonstrations in the performing and plastic arts (including shadow puppetry, mask making, and painting) as well as workshops in traditional cooking, farming, and ritual practices. Students will not only tour local civic and religious sites such as the traditional market and nearby temples, but will give back to their host community by participating in a culminating
performance.

Students will earn credit for MUS 134: Music of Asia (3hrs)


This program has been cancelled for 2021. We expect it to be offered again Summer 2023.
