We start from the very beginning and build each week. Each class includes exercises, both traditional Odissi + my personal dance favorites. Then “stepping” (Odissi a, b, c’s), mudras, eye-head-chest isolations, and a continuous stream of foundational teachings regarding Temple Dance, Yoginis, & Shakti (universal feminine creative energy).
Part 1: Choka: 1, 2, 3’s of Odissi
Foundational Masculine / Shiva Postures
Define Choka = square, represents Jagannath, Orissa’s Universal Master Consciousness Diety
Shiva = Universal Masculine Principle = foundation, structure, stabilizing
Part 2: Tribunghi: A, B, C’s of Odissi
Fluid Feminine / Shakti Postures
Tri= 3 Bunghi = bends
Shakti = Universal Feminine Creative Energy = sensual, wavelike, dynamic patterns
Part 3: Union & Dance of Shakti & Shiva
This Odissi choreography combines Part 1 & 2 including ritual, devotional expression, Herstorical lineage celebration.
