What’s Happening?

How many times have we watched those graceful dance movements on stage during a Bharatnatyam performance and wished we knew how to recreate them ourselves or at least understand the nuances behind the movement? Well, with this two-day workshop, we have a chance to pick up at least the basics of understanding what this ancient dance form is about.

This workshop is conducted by Nandini Ganesan, an artiste, choreographer and dancer associated with the Kalasadan Institute of Fine Arts here in Mumbai, where she teaches professionally. An award-winning dancer who has performed both nationally and internationally, Nandini’s sharing her years of training both at Kalasadan and with her guru, Smt. Chitra Visweswaran with us at this workshop.

Join her on day one of the workshop where she is poised to take us through the origins of the dance form, its relevance today and an interactive demonstration of postures and movements. Day two, you can expect a glimpse into the emotive aspect of dance and at the end of it, hopefully have a better understanding of what those beautiful hand movements and expressions really mean. Both days are interactive sessions and there’s a chance to ask questions during the Q&A session. For art lovers, dance enthusiasts and curious folk with a love for music and dance, we’re sure this is bound to be an enriching and engaging weekend!

Please note, the session with take place from 6pm – 7pm on Saturday and Sunday.
