In the dance workshops we will give an outline of the religious festival and any stories linked to it, the rituals and customs, as well as how dance is used in that festival and the significance of it.
We will play traditional music and where possible your teacher will wear a dance ‘costume’ to link in with the style of dance/country it’s from.
For example some of the religions or religious festivals we can teach for you are:
Nirvana and Wesak – Thai dance or Indian dance workshops
Diwali and Holi – Indian dance workshops
Passover, Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur – Israeli dance workshops
Ramadan, Eid-Ul-Ahda – Indian dance workshops
Vaisakhi, Birthday of Guru Nanak – Indian dance workshops
Lent, Easter, Christmas – Traditional English Country Dances
Chinese new Year: – Chinese fan dance
