Indian Dance Workshop Day 1!

Based upon previous posts, it might not be a surprise that I'm a little obsessed with learning about different cultures. Krithika Rajagopalan is a beautiful Bharata Natyam dancer and teacher. She's teaching a workshop at the Chi Movement Arts Center this week. I was terrified to take her class... primarily because I'm so scared of bastardizing the technique. The first day of class was/ is incredible! The tension in the movements totally resonates with my body structure, but wow! I am so sore! We might not be doing a lot of grande plies at barre tomorrow morning.

Here's a video of part of the class. I'm not in it because I'm taking it.

The workshop is open to the public, so come if you get the chance!
Chi MAC is home of Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers and is located at 1316 S. 9th Street in South Philly.
