Every Bollywood song has a story to tell, and we as dancers get to tell them using steps, mudras, and our expressions. Our expressions help us communicate the feel or mood of a piece with the audience. Difference of expression turns a happy song into a sad song, a powerful song into a shy song, a playful song into a serious one. And most importantly, expressions help us let our personalities shine on stage.
Referencing expressions as defined by the Navrasa, or nine major expressions of South Asian classical dance, each of the four weeks students will learn choreography and ways of emoting different specific expressions. Set to fun Bollywood Hits from the recent and distant past, this class will help students build skills to let expressions shine on stage!
Zoom link will be sent to all registered students.

10% of proceeds from this class will support “A Seat at Soup,” a new initiative that dedicates studio space and resources to a Black woman, trans, or non-binary emerging artist based in New York City. Conceived by Chinatown Soup, a volunteer-powered, nonprofit art community in service of emerging artists, the residency program encompasses four months of art-making at our shared studio and culminates with a week-long solo show at Soup Gallery.
Chinatown Soup is a creative community advancing art, justice, historic preservation, and civic engagement in downtown New York.
