Rasa, Talam, and Strength
I currently teach two levels of beginners. Beginner I students focus on building strength and rhythm, and learn elementary dances that focus on feeling, expression, and musical timing. Beginner II students, who have been dancing with NDS for 2-3 years, are progressing through basic foundational steps (adavus) and short dances that include elements of expressive and abstract dance. Both these classes have a few spots available. Please contact me if you think one of these beginner sessions is right for your child.
Bharatanatyam Fundamentals for Adults
This class welcomes adults from a variety of dance backgrounds (or none at all!). If you have studied Bharatanatyam briefly (less the 5 years) or just want to hit a reset button, this is also the class for you. We will focus on building strength and stamina through adavus (foundational abstract steps in Bharatanatyam) and yoga, while also developing our rasa through exploration of music, rhythm, and stories. This class helps adults get in shape and develop an expressive artistic persona. This class has been paused in 2018, but will restart in the Spring or Fall. Please contact me if you are interested.
Classes held at Sereda DanceWorks in Natick.
