Update - Odissi Odyssey
As the Covid crisis continues across the country, UNC Charlotte has decided that Summer 2020 courses and camps will be taught on-line only. The Department of Dance has therefore cancelled the Odissi Odyssey: Summer Camp and Public Performance.
Though we are deeply saddened by this news, our acclaimed Odissi dance professor, Kausavi Sarkar, has generously offered to provide a three-part educational and professional development initiative as part of The Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth (SPICMACAY).
The Society is a voluntary youth movement that promotes intangible aspects of Indian cultural heritage by promoting Indian classical music, classical dance, folk music, yoga, meditation, crafts and other aspects of Indian culture. They have agreed to help in promotion as well as certification of this initiative.
The three-part educational and professional development initiative is as follows:
April 27 - May 1 9am - 11 am - Fundamentals of Movement
May 25 - 29 9 am -11 am - The Creative Process
July 6 – 10 9 am - 11 am - Investigations of the Canon
