What is it?
An exclusive dance retreat only for women. It is inspired on our favorite dance-forms, taught by Leli Neeraja and yours truly.
In an AMAZING villa somewhere in the Italian Tuscany. Surrounded by green meadows, near the sea and a private lake just for us.
From July 9th to 15th. 6 nights and 5 dance/movement styles.
TASTEFULL INDIA DANCE RETREAT
We named the retreat “Tasteful India” because we want to make it really tasty for all of you. That is why we created a brand new format for this retreat: 5 days and 6 disciplines.
- Classical Indian Odissi Dance
Undoubtedly, one of our most valuable treasures. All of our fusions are rooted here, understanding “roots” as the foundation of the innate movement following many years of training.
An entire morning studying this GRACEFUL/GORGEOUS dance form will provide you with tools to get to know your body, study thoroughly the “mudras”, the principle of opposites, different ways of walking, spins and a specific footwork.
What a delicious way to start the retreat!
- Kalbelia Dance
The dance of the women of Rajasthan. A dance form created by the community to dance in community. Get ready to discover the power of this dance, its rhythm, the sinuosity of its movements and the joy of sharing it with the group!
- Yoga and Conscious Breathing
These two are the “must” of this edition: at the middle of the week, we will set the body and the mind up in order to face the rest of the week in a sustainable and conscious way. On Wednesday, the schedule will be a little bit different, and we are sure that you will absolutely enjoy it!
We love this hybrid! Taking Bollywood as a starting point (adornment, celebration and joy) we will deal with a truly fascinating concept – the Abhinaya. The ability of telling stories without speaking. Specific exercises, reading and researches will help us set a perfect atmosphere to create communication through the body.
