Traditional Middle Eastern Dance With Jan Lowry (Thursdays 3:00-4:00)

This is a mixed level class so beginners are welcome. We begin with a grounding exercise and move onto stretches and then into basic drills.  During class we use props like veils and finger cymbals. January begins our new choreography and our finger cymbal  piece.  I will teach you the basics of finger cymbal work for this piece. 

Wear clothes you can move in and soft soled shoes if you want or you can dance barefoot as well.  If you have a veil, finger cymbals and a hip scarf bring them, but if not I have some to share.  Bring a water bottle as well.

Kathak is a north Indian classical dance that originated over 2000 years ago from the travelling bards of North India referred as Kathakas or storytellers. The Kathakas communicate stories through rhythmic foot movements, hand gestures and facial expressions. Kathak is known  for its characteristic pirouettes, dramatic flourishes, footwork, and grace. Inspired by the rishis and sadhus, Pandit Chitresh Das developed kathak yoga as a training technique that ultimately improves concentration, stamina, endurance and focus.  

In Kathak dance, the performer develops a spiritual association with Earth. Tatkar, which is Kathak’s basic footwork, includes more than the physical dimension; it concerns the power of energy. Energy generated at the soles of the feet while performing Kathak flows up to the crown of the head, streaming through all the body’s cells. As energy reaches the crown, it harmonizes the body and soul.
