Educating, Enriching, and Evolving


The rich traditions of Indian classical dance have transcended generations and oceans. KDC presents dedicated adult instruction in Bharatanatyam 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.
