Colleena Shakti : New Guest Teacher at Datura Online

It is with great excitement that we present to you the first two workshops from our new guest teacher, Colleena Shakti!

North Indian Classical Spins + Arms with Colleena Shakti

In her North Indian Classical Spins + Arms workshop, she presents precise, powerful, and graceful spins and arm movement drawn from her study of Kathak and other Indian dance forms. http://daturaonline.com/classical-north-indian-turns-and-spins

Khatak Spins and North Indian ArmsNorth Indian Classical Spins + Arms

Controlled, precise spins are the goal of this workshop and relevant for the beginner, as well as the advanced dancer. We will begin with a grounding Vinyasa Krama Yoga routine and establish arm patterns with a Kathak classical dance inspired drill. Spinning techniques from North Indian classical dance will lead the way into short spin combinations on an eleven count Hindustani rhythm. An endurance spinning drill is also included to practice spinning for greater durations. Be ready to push through to the next level no matter where you are with your dance. Suggested attire is a large spinning skirt and dancing barefoot is ideal for this class. Be sure the floor surface you are dancing on is appropriate for fast spins so as not to risk injury.
