Magda Niernsee, dancer, choreographer, educator with over 10 years of teaching experience, graduate of the Kathak Kendra Higher School of Dance in New Delhi. Artist performing in many artistical projects and concerts.
The Kathak dance is one of India’s classic dances. It has both a technical part – rhythmic and lyrical – telling stories using hand gestures and facial expressions.
OPEN LEVEL PRACTISE
Practise of basics – tatkar, chakkars/turns, hand and spine movements, mudras/hand gestures, some theory, eyes exercise, simple forms and rythmical patterns
CHOREOGRAPHIES OPEN LEVEL
Group choreographies to modern music, chosen together with participants.
Tecnical forms of solo repertoire of kathak as well as classical choreography – after min 1 year of regular practise
Graceful female movements, distinctive hand gestures and clear facial expressions illustrating the lyrics, rhythmic music and colorful costumes – this is the essence of Indian Bollywood dance.
During the classes you can expect a lot of energy and a smile. The technique greatly improves motor coordination, body awareness and general condition. Eyes, hands, hips and feet will dance as they stamp out the beat.
Using movement vocabulary base on kathak we will improvise, searching for our own authentic movement as well as whirl.
A journey to your ownself in a safe, friendly environment. Leaded on the base of solid technic but with wide space to express individuality.
In the first semester project will be created to the music from illustrative Himalaya soundtrack.
