Amazing Indian Dance Experience

By Leave a comment

We were so privileged to have such a wonderful learning experience today with Vidya Thirunarayan teaching us Bharata Natyam dance, a dance from Southern India.

We learnt a little of the history, then a dance sequence, after which we sat down for a rest while Vidya showed us the hand movements which we copied whilst pronouncing the name of each hand symbol!

It was fascinating and really well taught, Vidya guided us to focus on what we could do with our hands, eyes and arms, and to bring the dance alive with intention, incorporating our whole bodies.

An amazing and special experience, thank you Vidya!
