Odissi Dance: New Phrases

14 December 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Elastic Weight Shifts and Romantic Stances of Nritta & Abhinaya

Thursday, Dec 14 ~ 8-10 pm IST (India)

This pop up Odissi Classical Dance workshop will be an inspiring exploration of several unique movement stylizations that give Odissi its charming curvature. After a warm up and short series of training exercises Colleena will introduce new steps and mudra/arm pathways that build into 2 short phrases: one explores abhinaya movements rarely broken down, yet common to Odissi’s romantic/devotional storytelling choreographies, and another phrase centered on the complexities of weight shifts and elastic movements in nirtta choreographies.

Ideally students joining should have a strong foundation in Odissi classical dance technique.

Can’t join live? A recording will be available for 48 hours so you can study at your own pace.

Cost: $40

*Indian Nationals currently working in India can inquire about rates in INR
