Chhau dance workshop with Santosh Nair

As part of its annual Hemantika Dance Festival, Sujata Banerjee Dance Company is offering an extremely rare opportunity to participate in a Chhau dance workshop taught by the Indian maestro Santosh Nair, right here in London. This dace form is based on indigenous and martial practices and includes mock combat techniques and stylised bird and animal movements.

 Using dynamic movements & spectacular jumps, the workshop will teach dancers the skills of power, strength, balance and stillness which will greatly enhance your own practice, whatever your dance style.

 The workshop is suitable for anyone learning dance for at least 3 years and with a reasonable level of fitness. Age 18+

Celebrating 40 inspiring years.

2019 is Akademi’s 40th anniversary year and we want to celebrate the breadth and richness of South Asian dance in the UK. We’ve invited artists to submit information on London-based events that they are planning between April 2019 and April 2020 to form the Akademi Associated programme.
