Discover the joy of Indian dance
An introduction to classical indian dance
with Raghunath Manet
Fridays, 19 March – 9 April 2021 (online via zoom)
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm, Central European Time (CET)
This course is an invitation to experience the joy and dynamism of Indian dance with a very gifted indian artist. Raghunath is also an enthusiastic and energetic teacher. Classical Indian arts are his passion. Indian dance is deeply embedded in the spiritual traditions of India, and much of its devotional mood can be felt through the movements and face expression of Bharata Natyam.
This not only energizes the body but purifies the mind, creating a feeling of exhilaration and connection to the Divine.
Raghunath shares his contagious love for classical Indian dance, with much positivity and generosity.
You do not need any previous experience of indian dance. All are welcome to take part in this time of inspiration, great energy and healthy workout !
