Fields of Study
dance
Description
Odissi, one of the major classical dance styles of India, combines both rhythmic movement and expressive mime. This class will be devoted to the principles of Odissi dance: the synthesis of foot, wrist, hand, and face movement in a lyrical flow to express the philosophy of yoga. Throughout the quarter we will study tala (rhythm). Students will keep a journal of class notes, discuss the readings, and have cross-cultural dialogues.
