INTRODUCTION TO NATYA SHASTRA 💫

We are trying out something new with an interesting Natya Shastra themed session this Spring, led by Shaoni Chatterji.

Natya Shastra is the ancient text from which most Indian classical dances & performing arts are derived. It is a topic of research for Shaoni as part of her graduate study of movement therapy. The themes to be covered will include bhangis, abhinaya darpan, gestures, shiro vedas, drishti vedas, etc. from which Odissi, Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, etc. are all derived. This will give us a holistic view of the entire eco-system of classical dance forms and performing arts overall.

Namami Yogi Vidye - Indian Classical Odissi - By DandrVersify

While most of us still eagerly await the vaccine and hoping for it in this new year, one medicine that has helped our physical, emotional and mental being survive the difficult times thus far, is dance! Every movement we have created has been the sum total of moments, experiences, joys and sorrows. Here’s one from the archives of DVa’s Indian classical choreography, created by the talented artist who loves exploring dance as a therapy. Wishing for more peace, more happiness and more mental wellbeing in the new year to come!

2020 brought to us the gift of overseas instructors! Even though we missed the glitter of costumes, the adrenaline rush of stage performances and mostly the audience cheer - we got to try new dance styles, new instructors, new choreography and a whole new perspective of online classes. Here’s one by a very talented dancer/choreographer all the way from Mumbai (India)!

As we reflect on what we could do during this pandemic (instead of brooding over what we couldn’t), the greatest gift was the opportunity to bring back the best of D’Vas from all over the country and overseas too!

Continuing our mood for throwbacks, is this wonderful Valentines 2020 celebration (or as we call it “Galentines Day”) with the wonderful girl tribe of D’Va!

This is just a reminder to not live in fear or despair, rather live in love, peace and positivity!

12/25/2020

As we start our countdown to the last few days of the incredibly difficult and different year 2020, we fondly reminiscence the moments spent in-person at our very dear studio (shared with Southwind Taekwondo) - a place that will forever hold a special corner in our hearts. The studio was shutdown later in the year as an aftermath of Covid-19, like many other small businesses, while we continued classes online. But all the little memories we created in there will sure last a lifetime!

Sending you all some holiday cheer with one such sweet memory, hope you enjoy! Happy Christmas Eve! 🎄 🎅 🥂

Bhangra originated in Punjab as a celebratory folk dance to acknowledge a good harvest by the farmers. It is performed by dancing & singing songs to dhol beats. Without farmers, Bhangra would not have existed. We sing their songs, we dance their moves. With their struggles, we stand. It is our duty to support the thousands of farmers in India, who are protesting against the controversial anti-farm bills passed by the Indian Govt., that can jeopardize their livelihoods.
