This course involves learning the performance and artistic skills needed for cross-cultural participation in one of the artistic traditions of a community. Emphasis is on developing an understanding of how to perform within the context of a chosen tradition, including researching this tradition and how it functions artistically and socially in its community. The choice of ethnic ensemble or mentoring relationships will vary depending upon the type of student need and availability of instructors. The student will take initiative in choosing and engaging with their mentor, in consultation with the course head. This course may be retaken if the genre studied is completely different from a previous session.
