About the Course – semi-classical indian dance

The Semi-Classical course brings the beautiful styles of classical Indian dance forms right up to date with Bollywood hits. With a focus on rhythms, story-telling, expression, power and grace that is integral to Kathak (one of the many classical indian dance styles), our semi-classical course acts as an introduction to the basics of Kathak and explores how the Bollywood songs we know and love can be a way for us to access this traditional art form.

The Semi-Classical course has an emphasis on delicate choreography, the precision of movement (especially arm and head placements), ability to hold and play with rhythms and finally, building confidence in expressing oneself through movement.

This course is great for beginners, and intermediate dancers too – previous classical Indian dance training is not essential.

What to expect from this class: 

  • A solid foundation of Indian Classical dance
  • Bollywood technique, and general Kathak dance technique, including posture and alignment
  • A weekly workout, cleverly combined with dance
  • Great music from the most recent Bollywood films to hit the cinema
  • An improvement in your overall dancing skills, memory and technique over the 5 weeks
