World Music in the Schools and Communities

World Music in the Schools fosters awareness and understanding of the world's performing arts and cultures and brings artistic resources, unique focus, and exceptional expertise of the Center to students across San Diego County. Program participants receive ongoing, hands-on instruction in world music and dance traditions from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe. The project impacts children (ages 5-18), parents, and school staff. The artistic merit of the project has been recognized by ongoing support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council, and the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.

Since the early 1990s, the Center for World Music (CWM) has offered Odissi dance classes in the San Diego area. These courses are taught by distinguished master dance teachers from Odisha, India, and by the Patnaik Sisters. In collaboration with the Orissa Dance Academy, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, the CWM brings visiting artists from India to San Diego for extended teaching residencies.

In addition to studying the fundamental techniques of Odissi performance, CWM Odissi students have the opportunity to blossom into seasoned artists by working closely with accomplished dance teachers from India. This unique opportunity has provided these students with a direct link to the source of this dance, exposing them to the teaching traditions of India and enriching their understanding of Indian culture.
