About Indian Dance
Where song & dance come together as your moving voice. Indian Classical Dance integrates stylised movement with theatre, set to a rich tapestry of melody and rhythm. Classes draw inspiration from stories, poetry, songs & prayers from around the world.
I have a background in the storytelling tradition of South Indian Classical Dance, Bharatanatyam. At 23, before the internet and mobile phones I went to South India on my own to find an Indian dance teacher. Kalamandalam Sumathy in Kerala welcomed me into her home where I stayed and learnt the first dance steps. This was the beginning of 10 years of training in India and in London.
She is also a natural voice practitioner and part of Songlines Health Choirs who share the power of singing to uplift and enrich lives. See website here
