July 1 - July 5, 2016 Yogaville, VA
Dakshina will host a residential DANCE INTENSIVE at the scenic Yogaville campus in Virginia from 9am to 5pm. The classes will be led by legendary dancers Madhavi Mudgal and Rama Vaidyanathan. The intensive is recommended for advanced dancers who can work in a fast pace. The dancers will learn yoga, Bharatanatyam, Odissi (technique and dances), and choreography. After learning the solo dances, the participants will work with the guest teachers on adapting a solo item into a group format. Students will perform the group choreography on the last evening of the intensive. Students will learn 3-4 dances depending on how quickly and how well they master each dance. The teachers will only proceed to the next dance after the dancers master the first dance.
Evenings will be set aside for practice, discussions, film viewings on dance. If you are working on your own choreography, the evening times will be perfect to receive one-on-one guidance.
