In this workshop, a performer of the Sattriya Dance Company, takes you on a journey through a 600-year-old dance tradition. This dance was only preserved, nourished, and practiced by monks on a little island in Northeast India until recently. 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. There are no recommended materials for this program.
