Batu Series

may - June

Deconstruct / Reconstruct this vibrant and vigorous classic odissi choreography through an entire ‘Batu Stepping’ series and review of the choreographies main ‘Arasa’ (compositions).  The focus of this series will be on understanding the musicality and refining nuanced transitions in the more challenging sections of the dance.  The entire dance will not be presented as a whole, so this is not a complete presentation of Batu for learning for the first time, rather the series is ideal for students wanting to newly approach the techniques of the choreography or polish this item they have already learnt.

*This class is not recommended for brand new Odissi students, some basic technique is required to execute the compositions comfortably.  If you have any questions or concerns about joining please email: ColleenaShakti@gmail.com

HeArt Series

Intentional Dance & Yoga Online Class Series

19 May – June 11

Within the heart is a brilliant light…

Hone your inner light through graceful embodiment practices from deeply rooted traditional dance and yoga practices, and ‘in the moment’ creation states.

Dance and yoga being one and the same, view the body as a multi layered site of performance – performing intentions that effect multiple layers of the self simultaneously.  Dance can be fun, technically challenging, relaxing and vigorous all at once while achieving both personal and stylistic goals.

Practice profound self empowering technologies that use the body as a means of transcendence, while also enjoying the beauty of our own body in union with the music.

This special May – June Online Class Series I am offering is about re-kindling the inner fire as we near the peak moment of light of the Summer Solstice.  There are classes for all levels of experience and recordings are available for the whole series so you are welcome to join from anywhere, at any time!
