Indian Temple Dance Odissi Intensive Online training with Premal Madina
Indian Classical dance Odissi is regarded as one of the oldest surviving dance forms of India. It has originated from Orissa and its history can be traced back to the 2nd century BC. The dance form has been extensively depicted in the sculptures of Bhubaneswar temple and Sun Temple of Konark.
The dance was traditionally practiced as a sacred ritual to ignite transformation in the dancer and audience. Considered both a classical and devotional dance form, Odissi is graceful and sensuous, expressive and sophisticated. The Dance exquisitely portrays the beauty of the sacred feminine and reflects the ancient spiritual motifs of India’s great Tantric temples.
