About this Grantee

During summer 2004, Ms. Hobbs participates in Earthwatch Expeditions and travels to western and southern Russia to explore the rich tradition of music and dance. She documents and analyzes folk music and dance that was censored and almost extinguished under Soviet rule. Upon her return, she incorporates this music into her curriculum to offer comparisons between folk music traditions in the United States and Russia.
