The program for the workshop is divided into 2 parts: 

Choreographic Tools & Composition 10:00 - 12:00

Always wanted to create a fusion of Indian Dance & mudras with your own dance style? Here's your chance. 

In this module dancers will be introduced to tools of improvisation that will enable them to combine, Indian hand gestures (mudras), Indian Rhythms, Footwork and stylisations that can eventually be used in their own choreography; irrespective of dance style. Swapnil will also teach the dancers how a choreographed warm-up that integrates yoga & contemporary dance techniques seamlessly. 

Learn a new choreography 13:00 - 15:00 

In this module Swapnil Dagliya will teach the dancers a new choreography, prepared especially for the workshop. We will learn to implement the 'Choreographic tools' that we learnt in the previous module and create a fluid routine that combines elements of Indian Classical Dance, Folk Dance, Bollywood & Contemporary Dance. The choreography will be challenging and previous experience in any form of dance is encouraged.
