Payment options:  in full –  June 1, 2019.

Selection Criteria

GAMELAN: We invite individuals who have music experience to apply to the music program. Once you are in classes, Music Director Dewa Berata will help create study groups that will help both beginners and experienced gamelan players alike learn in an environment that is at once challenging and supportive. Those with no previous gamelan experience are encouraged to find recordings of gamelan and Balinese dance to listen to and/or view to help develop your understanding of how the music works. Musicians experienced in gamelan are encouraged to note your experience in detail in your application so that the teachers can plan accordingly.

DANCE:  The study of dance is open to all dancers regardless of genre.  Two levels of classes are structured in a way that nurtures community and friendship and also allows each person to grow artistically. Beginners will develop a strong understanding of the techniques of male and female dance and experienced Balinese dancers will have an opportunity to expand repertoire and deepen your understanding of the most profound principals of Balinese dance.
