Duration 120 min

The best way to find out what Indian dance feels like, is to experience it. This open level workshop gives you a taste of the basic elements of the dance and shows why for so many dance lovers, it tastes so sweet. Odissi artiste January Low introduces you to four core components of the Indian dances that all come together in a beautiful blend.

  • Background – what is is all about?
  • Movement – familiarise yourself with the Indian dance idiom in your own body.
  • Expression – learn how to convey emotive and narrative content though expressive gestures
  • Rhythms – get it touch with one of the most exciting components: rhythms and beats.

For whom: beginners in Indian dance or dancers with a dance background in another style.

January Low, born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia started dancing with classical ballet, followed by 25 years of Indian classical dance training in Sutra Dance Theatre, Malaysia, focusing on Odissi. She returned to the stage a year after the birth of her twins, with works such as rehab (2014), return (2015), bloom (2016) which she performed when she was seven months pregnant, dedicated (2017), MI(X)G (2018) and reclaim (2019). She is currently under the virtual mentorship of renowned Odissi exponent Bijayini Satpathy.

Tip: Sooraj Subramaniam give an performance in both classical and contemporary Odissi. More information here.
