About Bharatanatyam Beginners with Shivaangee Agrawal
Classes start on Mon 8 Jan 2024 and run until Mon 25 March 2024 (excluding Mon 12 Feb due to half term)
Bharatanatyam is a South Indian classical dance form which Shivaangee teaches the fundamentals of movement technique, use of music and rhythm and the socio-political context of current practice in the UK.
Class content will be choreographically simple, but with special attention is given to imagery, anatomy, and developing a personal connection with the movement with the help of captivating live Sitar music by Tommy Kholsa.
For those who have no prior experience of Bharatanatyam, this class offers an introduction to the form. For those with many years of experience, this class offers a somatic access point into the form that privileges the internal, felt experience of dancing, rather than the visual, external achievement of technique.
