Course Summary

Odissi is one of the most graceful classical dance forms in India. It is a dream of many dance aspirants to master this dance form in all its elegance, poise, and grandeur. While it is absolutely possible to make that dream come true, there are certain preconditions that need to be fulfilled. They are -

  • getting a proper initiation to the dance form
  • finding a good mentor
  • having a proper learning mindset

This course promises to introduce you to the basic lessons of Odissi which include topics such as exercises, Bhoomi Pranam, basic techniques, taal structure, and theoretical lessons.

The various productions based on a repertoire of the dance styles that I teach, Vivriti, Horikhela, Rituranga, Mahishashur Mardini, Vibhasma, and Pareshti are some of them. Her aim is to spread the classical styles more into the youth of the country as a passion/profession.
