At this interactive workshop, we will get a feel for various dances performed in India by learning the basics and foot works of classical dances like Bharantanatyam and Kuchipudi. Attendees will also learn folk dances like Garba, Dhandiya Raas, and Bollywood dances from presenter Pragnya Yogesh. They will also have an opportunity to try on various costumes and jewelry used in Indian dance.
