Avoid late fees and register by May 1, 2016
Master artists/teachers welcome you to one of Bali’s most vibrant centers of artistic activity.
Give yourself the gift of the arts and enjoy being a student in one of the planet’s most beautiful cultural sites. This three week program is sited in the village of Pengosekan just south of UBUD =. While providing the comforts of guest house Artini III and access to the vast restaurants of UBUD, our program finds the perfect balance between serious daily study of Balinese gamelan and dance and your own time for adventure. This program is ideal for musicians and dancers regardless of previous training. In past years participants have successfully brought partners and children – easy access to mountains, sea, zoo, bird park, and many other family and recreational attractions, everyone can find pleasure in Bali.
Established in 1998 in the village of Pengosekan, Cudamani has toured the United States six times. Recognized in Bali for their excellence and innovation in performance, at the heart of the organization is a commitment to the music and dance education of village youth. For ten years the Cudamani Summer Institute has provided training for artists of all ages and backgrounds from around the world. Dewa, Emiko, and senior guest faculty have crafted a system of teaching that responds to individual ability and is ideal for international participants. Fifteen members of Cudamani apprentice in this international exchange by performing along side and giving additional instruction as required.
There is no substitute for experiencing Bali through the Cudamani lens. Our program includes daily instruction, guest lectures, field trips, gamelan performance in local (non-tourist) contexts, shared housing and partial meals. (Single supplements available). Support letters can be provided for those seeking University support for participation.
