“Nihonbuyo- Japanese Traditional Dance” by Fujima Rankoh
This session starts with “bowing”, which is an indispensable part of Japanese dance training. One of the characteristics of Japanese dance is that dancers may assume the role of their opposite gender in performance. A male dancer may perform a female role, and a female dancer may perform a male role. And hence, after a brief introduction of Japanese dance, trainees will have hands-on experience of how to use their bodies to differentiate male and female roles. For that purpose, trainees will use a special fan called “mai ohgi” and practice a part of “Fuji Musume” (Wisteria Maiden), a female dance, as well as “Tomo Yakko” (Attendant Footman), a male dance.

“Contemporary Dance” by Ronita Mookerji
This workshop is open to one and all, of all age groups, who love dancing and are ready to move in a physical way emphasizing on the physical exploration and expression of the body and mind in control with the breath. It will involve an intensive physical experience of the body through an introduction of Body Stretching, Yoga and Body-Conditioning exercises as well as Cardiovascular exercises as a Warm up, leading to across-the-floor movement phrases that incorporate the relationship of one with his/her own self and the space around, also the other bodies that are in the same space. Some basic Contemporary Dance Techniques will be introduced that will use floor work, animalistic qualities of movement, engagement of core and other muscles of the body in a fluid way, culminating into a semi-intense physical movement sequencing of the phrases and basic movements taught in the whole session. So be prepared to sweat it out in a fun way that not only flow your mind into the intricacies of your “physical” body but also help you to breathe easy though it, leaving you in an alive and excited physical state of mind and body.
