Course Summary

Odissi is one of the eighth major ancient Indian Classical Dance forms that originated in the Hindu Temple of Orissa to worship Lord Jagannath (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu) by the "Devdasis".

It is full of elegant and graceful movements with sculptural postures adorned on the walls of the temples of Orissa along with rhythmic patterns and facial expressions to emote feelings and describe religious stories.

The entire diktat that is followed in Odissi is documented in "Natya Shastra", the ancient Hindu Sanskrit text of performing arts. Odissi is traditionally a dance-drama genre where all the artists and musicians play out a story, or a spiritual message from the Hindu texts using symbolic costumes, body movements, abhinaya (facial expressions), and mudras (hand gestures).
