This is a weekly open level class (aimed towards beginners) to introduce the foundations of classical Odissi Dance. Odissi comes from the state of Odisha, South East India. It is one of the few classicalised dance styles from India and is seeped in spirituality, tradition, and discipline.
No prior experience required. Whilst a background of dance, yoga, or martial arts is helpful, it is not required.
Casual $20 / $15 (Student Concession)
10 Class Pass $155 / $125 (Student Concession)
Payment can be made at the class via cash/card OR in advance via Bank Deposit.
Over the weeks, we will explore the very basics, including theory, mudra, mantra, lineage, and the foundational positions and exercises of Odissi dance.
