Educating, Enriching, and Evolving

 

The rich traditions of Indian classical dance have transcended generations and oceans. KDC presents dedicated adult instruction in Bharatanatyam and Kathak for beginning, intermediate and advanced students. Using rhythmic footwork, geometric movement, codified hand gestures, and facial expressions to tell powerful stories and create intricate sequences of dance, the faculties of abhinaya and nritta are shaped and honed. Through this journey, students advance towards technical precision, depth of emotional expression, increased rigor, and artistic maturity.

LASYA: Adult Bharatanatyam

Lasya introduces the basic elements of Bharatanatyam for new and returning adult practitioners. Following the Vahzavoor and Mysore Banis of Bharanatyam, students learn integral aspects of nrithy, nritta, and natya.  Lasya I and II are cumulative courses following margam, the traditional bharatanatyam repertoire, utilizing ancient poetry and song to bring the art form to life.

Lasya I is best suited for beginners and Bharatanatyam dancers with only a few years of training.  Class is held Wednesdays from 7:15 – 8:15 PM.

Lasya II is for our advanced/intermediate dance practitioners.  Class is held Wednesdays from 8:15 – 9:15 PM.  Both classes are held at the American Rhythm Center (410 S. Michigan, Third Floor).
