Workshops are currently being offered in traditional Bharata Natyam dance, which originated over 2,000 years ago in South India.
The dance is in the tradition of T. Balasaraswati, with guest artist Srimati Shyamala Mohanraj from India, and is being offered by Maharishi College of Enlightenment.*
In these workshops students are being given an introduction to basic techniques, including body posture, rhythmic footwork, and mudras (hand gestures). A short composition may also be part of the workshop. No experience is necessary.
This tradition of dance uses a language of gesture and storytelling called abhinaya and rhythmic steps called adavus, to convey desire for spiritual awakening. Based in Vedic knowledge and the postures of Yoga, the dance enlivens bliss, harmony, integration, and good health.
Workshops for ladies:
∙ Wednesday, September 22, 7:30-8:45 p.m.
∙ Saturday, September 25, 10:30 a.m.-noon
∙ Sunday, September 26, 1:30-3:00 p.m.
