Odissi is an Indian Classical Dance form from Orissa. It is known for its formal relationship with the sculptures and reliefs of temples in India. It has enchanting movements which require a balance of strength and grace and its charming music paves way for rhythmic and intricate footwork, hand gestures, etc. It's a wonderful portal into the culture of India!
The beginners section aims to build on the technique of the dance form. The teacher works very closely with the student polishing movement and nuances.
The intermediate section aims to work on a piece of choreography from the traditional repertoire and will be decided based on student levels.
Beginners are advised to attend Technique session only for the first term.
Intermediate are advised to attend both sessions.

The workshop will involve 4 days of Odissi movement practice where each day participants will also work with movements of other Indian classical dance forms like Bharatnatyam, Kathak and Manipuri.
This would be an excellent opportunity for beginners to get a taste for Odissi or for the experienced to strengthen their technique and begin to experiment with the form. And for those of you who always wanted a taste of the other forms, this would present a relaxed atmosphere to give it a go!
