Odissi is one of the eight principal Indian classical dance forms, hailing from the eastern state of Orissa in India, a land of temples. Odissi is characterized by its fluid torso movements, strong footwork, grace, spirituality, and riveting music - a combination that brings to life the sculptural dance poses abounding the temple walls.
Sujata Mohapatra, one of India's leading international soloists, will guide the class through the nuances of Odissi dance: footwork, body movements, and the lyrical grace of postures.
