Master Class
This introductory class is an opportunity to learn basic abstract movement phrases and the body-training specific to Odissi, as evolved and practiced at Nrityagram.

The company begins with a brief lecture that traces Odissi dance from its origin to how it is practiced today, specifically at Nrityagram. A demonstration follows this to illustrate the body training practiced at Nrityagram, the language of Odissi: body positions, basic movement technique, and the use of hand gestures and facial expressions for expressional dance. To end the demonstration, the method and language of Odissi dance are brought to life through the performance of an excerpt.

Participants then learn Isolated body-training techniques used at Nrityagram, including information from the Abhinaya Darpana and Natyashastra, which are ancient texts of dance and theatre. The class ends with the teaching of essential phrases that provide a brief but complete experience of the Odissi dance vocabulary
