**Space for 20 dancers**

A beautiful and modern merging of Belly Dance, Indian and Nepalese Temple Dance, Mudric Arts and embodied Yogic principles, all infused with focused ritual intent.

Drawing inspiration from these ancient dance and yogic traditions this course will cover shapes, symbology, gorgeous sculptural poses, precise postural alignments, arm pathways, foot work and meaningful mudra. We will fuse these temple techniques with the earthy and feminine expression of belly dance to create a unique and enchanting modern fusion. We will also work on linking deep meaning and sacred connection to our movement.
