Stepping into Advanced Techniques ~
Students wishing to advance their techniques in Odissi dance will enjoy this course to challenge their coordination, precision and balance. Two full length stepping practices have been devised of common movement patterns found in repertoire dance items (Hari OM, Batu) and isolated for repetitive practice. By honing in on unique movement dynamics and geometric patterns in nritta sequences, students will gain insights into movement principles that can often get overlooked.
This course includes both:
- Synchronous classes: live online courses conducted in real-time via Zoom
- Asynchronous classes: high quality pre-recorded classes and practice videos
The course content includes: pre-recorded videos which impart the breakdown of the steps and a run through to use for self practice. The course also includes scheduled Live Zoom classes for: group learning and review, question/answer sessions and to receive individual feedback and corrections on your dance progress. Please try to attend at least half of the scheduled Zoom classes with cameras on so you receive that essential feedback from your teacher. If you cannot attend the Live sessions, please contact Colleena to schedule a private Zoom session ($25).
Live Zoom Class Schedule:
- 4 Wednesdays ~ April 7, 14, 21, & 28 – 7:15-8:45 pm (EET Athens Time)
*If you cannot attend live, class recordings will be added to this course within 12-24 hours. Once posted, you have 24 hours to view.
