LEARN this highly evolved spiritual practice through movement with the expressive language of devotion and rhythm. with Anusha Fernando.
Once a month, come for an hour and a half and dance Bharata Natyam, the Indian Classical dance that is one of the most ancient forms of sacred dance, a highly evolved spiritual practice. It is an art which consecrates the body, the dancer, who dissolves their identity in rhythm and music, makes their body an instrument, at least for the duration of the dance, for the experience and expression of enlightenment - Oneness of Kundalini Shakti, with Existence. Revealing the spiritual through the corporeal, learn about the traditional repertoire that focuses on spiritual themes such as the experience of suffering, potential for Liberation, and Enlightenment itself.
Anusha Fernando, founder and director of Shakti Dance, will guide us through Karanas/Aduvas, movement phrases describing specific leg, hip, body, and arm movements accompanied by hasta mudras described in the Natya shastra and other scriptures.
Join us in a blissful journey with this cherished dance form of India, characterized by humility, discipline, grace, bliss and rigorous technique.
"We bow down to Shiva, whose limbs are the universe, whose speech is all language, whose ornaments are the moon, stars and sun."
