Embodying Culture

Dance as Education

This chapter explains Javanese values, their embodiment in court dance and their contribution to the production of citizens in the Indonesian Republic. Javanese court dance has become a resource within the domain of cultural politics as a performance event, but learning to dance has also provided individuals with useful resources in the domain of social interaction. Javanese socialization processes have been extended and transformed to shape an Indonesian model of identity. The principle developed in the Tamansiswa educational system that dance reflects the character of the person has resulted in a restricted set of physical practices and performance contexts becoming associated with an education in embodied selfcontrol, which many Javanese Indonesians consider to be central to their identity.
