LONDON – Aug. 6 – North Indian & Indian Contemporary Workshop
Aug 6 all-day

A One day Intensive of North Indian & Indian Contemporary Dance with Colleena Shakti.

Colleena Shakti, one of the most sought after teachers of our time is currently in London and offering an exquisite day full of dance. The intensive will split into two beautifully complimentary parts; North Indian dance and Colleena’s new body of work, Indian Contemporary. Come dance in beauty, in strong warrior nature, and in bliss with us on Sunday 6th August.

Part #1 – North Indian Dance

Greatly inspired by folkloric and tribal dances of Rajasthan, the unparalleled grace of classical Kathak dance and the ecstatic music traditions of Sufi Qawwali, Colleena invites us into the rich world of North Indian dance. This workshop will introduce various classical and folkloric techniques of dance including spins, poses and arm patterns, then build up to beautiful gliding phrases of her unique style.

All levels welcome. Please wear a long spinning skirt. We will be spinning a lot in the class!

Part #2 – Indian Contemporary Dance

The core body of Indian classical dance and martial arts utilize imaginative combinations of circles, spirals and complex bends. This new workshop draws from years of careful study and intensive training in several traditional movement modalities of India (Kalarypayattu, Yoga Vinyasa, Odissi classical dance, Kathak classical dance and more). Colleena extracts core muscle movements layered with minute details (such as mudra), together with thematic bodylines to create a powerful and fluid new contemporary style.

Inspiring traditional themes of intention such as: warrior like courage, inner strength and stillness, compassion and surrender, will lead this dance workshop from movement exploration into choreography. A special addition to this workshop will be some exercises in Kalarypayattu, an ancient martial arts form of Southern India.

All levels of dance experience welcomed, however the movements are strong and require a certain degree to stamina and strength, particularly the Kalarypayattu exploration.

Tuition and times:

6 hours tuition with Colleena Shakti split into 2x 3 hour classes (Part 1 and Part 2)

The Place, 17 Duke’s Road, London WC1H 9PY
