A day at Dance India
Dance India offers participants the opportunity to learn, express, and fully immerse themselves in dance. Whatever the style, we’re all brought together by our love of Indian dance and our appreciation of the effect it has on our lives.
Each day at Dance India, skills are strengthened, refined, and honed in an intense yet nurturing environment that provides the tools and support to push participants limits and dance to the next level.
Each class also learns a new piece of repertoire during the week, and participants aren’t only given the movements and technique, but also the music! At the end of Dance India participants receive a CD copy of the piece of music to take home.
