This is a group for serious, active dance lovers to learn Indian classical dance with its roots in yoga. 

Focus is for adults to learn classical Odissi in a professional, systematic manner.

Yoga and Odissi share similarities in form and posture. Odissi focuses on connecting physical energy with spiritual energy. The graceful and fluid movements of this dance is punctuated by moments of stillness when the dancer poses as if transformed into a sculpture. When mastered this dance is the epitome of fluid grace. Beginner level classes are offered by Nilanjana Banerjee, who has spent years immersing herself in this ancient tradition. It is not necessary to have experience in Indian dance. All you need is the willingness to be open and explore a different cultural tradition as you learn intricate footworks and the art of story telling through expressions and gestures. Dress code : Please wear a loose top and yoga pants or leggings.

Members are informed about regular workshops & free as well as paid performances so that they can watch this dance firsthand.

FYI  :Inactive group members who do not show up or communicate with the organizer will be asked to leave.
