Fundamentals of Balinese Dance with Nani Devi


BALAM brings Bali to New York with the Fundamentals of Balinese Dance workshop series. This four class dance workshop will be taught on Saturdays starting November 5 from 3-4 p.m., November 12 from 4-5 p.m., December 3 from 12-1 p.m. and December 10 from 12-1 p.m. at DANY Studio located at 305 West 38th Street.  

Nani Devi, a celebrated performer from Bali, who has toured and taught throughout the world, will provide expert instruction that enhances a performer’s physical expression.  Students will discover another culture’s skilled movement patterns and experience the feminine archetype from the classic Balinese dance role, Condong. They will learn how to develop three-dimensional hand and arm movements, acquire fierce eyes, present a mysterious, sweet smile, and much more.

No previous dance experience is necessary. Class size is limited. Fee: $15 per class. For further information, call 646-361-9183.
