Come learn the fundamentals of Balinese dance. This class will include both female and male styles of dance. One difference is that the female style often has a set choreography while the male style acts as the conductor for the music and has more variation. Join us as we explore this traditional dance language. This workshop is in collaboration with the dancers of the Chicago Balinese Gamelan.
Chicago Balinese Gamelan (CBG) is an ensemble dedicated to expanding the awareness of traditional Balinese music, dance and culture while delivering accessible, exhilarating, world-class programs and performances driven by Balinese performing arts. The organization was founded in 2017 by Claire Fassnacht, with support and guidance from Nyoman Mahartayasa and Ketut Gede Asnaw
