The unique role of dance in Asian Indian culture, as well as its universal relevance as a resource for transformation, is explored in Dance Connections.
Through dance, video and discussion, we examine the potential of dance to promote individual and cultural identity, bridging connections between diverse groups of people.
Through the practice of Asian Indian dance movements and therapy, this workshop provides a connection to the roots of the healing practices. The focus is on the importance of learning other cultures’ dance and healing dance forms as a means of learning contemporary therapy principles. The workshop examines the evolution of dance throughout time and practice, provides a heightened awareness of body/self in relation to one’s community and the earth, and examines the origins of the communal processes used in dance therapy today.
Session: 90 minutes classes, once a week for 6 weeks
Instructors: Rita Mustaphi / Mukta Sathe
