When and Where:
Date: Friday, July 31, 2020
Location: Online via Zoom
Time: 7:30-9:30 PM ET
Cost: $45 or pay what you can
Explore the many moods and hues of Nayikas, from mugdha (innocence) to khandita (anger). In this class, Maya Kulkarni uses ashtapadis (poetry) to deepen the dancer’s understanding of two different types of Nayikas. Techniques to understand lifestyle, mood, age, music, poetry, and mudras will be explored with the dancer to provide a more nuanced way to approach their own abhinaya.
This class will have a part 2 session to further delve into Nayikas later in August.
Dancers (21+) with knowledge of abhinaya from any genre
Who this is for:
Advanced dancers looking to master their storytelling abilities
What you will get out of it:
A deeper understanding behind the theory of nayikas
For each Nuance class we provide a few scholarship slots for those who cannot afford to take the class at the full rate. These are the "Pay what you can" registration tickets. We ask that if you are able to pay the full amount, please do, as it will allow those who have less to take the class at the reduced rate. Additionally if you are able to donate above the full rate, it will enable us to open up more scholarship slots for the class. Fifty percent of what you pay goes to the artist.
