The ANAR DANA training project is a series of 9 intensive weekends of 12 hours each. Dancers decide upon the repertoire of 7 dances in the introductory weekend. We learn the techniques of each of the dance styles decided upon, do dance technique training and yoga, learn about the cultural and historical backgrounds for the different dance styles, and learn music analysis, dance notation, choreography, staging, stage make-up and costumes. There is a certificate of participation for all who complete the program.
ANAR DANA projects are now open to daily visitors if you are a current or former member of ANAR DANA. This way you can dance with your dance sisters anywhere in the world and brush up on some topic you may have done yourself, or learn something you always wanted to! Drop-ins are $55 for one unit (ie one day including the Awaken Your Dancing Body! class of that day.) See the full calendar here, and contact Helene (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register.
