BHARATANATYAM – YUVA GATI NATIONAL C.A.T. WORKSHOP
What To Expect?
If you’re familiar with these styles then these workshops will offer a new perspective to expand your skills or if you’re new to Classical Indian Dance then try something new and develop your own artistic voice!
After the warm up, you will learn some basic building blocks of each technique including rhythms, positions and footwork. You will learn how to tell a story through movement and follow up with a short creative exercise and sequence to try your own version! We hope you enjoy!
