Rasa, Talam, and Strength
This introductory class combines two levels of beginners, allowing new students to view and interact with students who have been dancing for longer. New students focus on building strength and rhythm, and learn elementary dances that focus on feeling, expression, and musical timing. Children who have been dancing with NDS for 1-2 years progress through basic foundational steps (adavus) and short dances that include elements of expressive and abstract dance. This class is full for Fall 2017. Please check back in Winter 2017 to see if there are slots available.
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) 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 availability for Fall 2017. Please contact me to join!
Classes held at Sereda DanceWorks in Natick.
