MUSIC AND DANCE DEMO
This is our most requested program. Three to six performers, including master Balinese Artists-in-Residence, come to your school and demonstrate gamelan instruments, dance, costumes, and how they all fit together. Bali’s ethos of balance, harmony, and interdependence shines through in the glittering quality of interlocking rhythms, melded with Balinese flair for dramatic presentation. This can be tailored for any size audience or assembly.
HANDS-ON GAMELAN WORKSHOP
For students 8 and up, in groups of up to 18 children. This can either be a one-time session or a multi-week program. Students get to play the gamelan angklung, a 4-toned orchestra, which is an ideal size for both children and adults. The angklung orchestra is made up of metallophones and gongs of various sizes and can be transported to your school.
SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS, TEam-BUiLDING, AND RESIDENCIES
Lectures, demonstrations, small performances, residencies, and other programs for schools, universities, and corporate team-building functions are available.

We have presented a variety of workshops related to Balinese arts, from making traditional offerings, to the history on Balinese puppetry, to multi-week school residencies in Balinese arts, music, dance, and theater.
