A Classical Dance Tradition
by Madhusmita Bora
In this workshop, a performer of the Sattriya Dance Company takes you on a journey through a 600-year-old dance tradition. Until recently, this dance was only preserved, nourished, and practiced by monks on a little island in northeast India. Students are exposed to stories from Hindu mythology through the dance and also learn about the monks and their lives. Along the way, participants are led in movement exercises and learn some vocabulary of this ancient Indian tradition.
