Odissi is a powerful and refined dance style, which simultaneously works on mental, physical and spiritual levels. It is a holistic and demanding practice, which nevertheless gives joy and empowerment. Odissi unlocks the feminine through its graceful vocabulary and develops inner strength through its powerful rhythmic footwork.

Elena teaches Odissi according to the Srjan-GKM style. She has developed a personal approach to technique, which makes her classes enjoyable, safe and yet challenging, without compromising on beauty and precision.

The class includes a thorough warm-up, study of technique and choreography. Please notice that LEVEL 2 includes also LEVEL 1. Due to the characteristics of the style and the importance of regular practice it is strongly advised to register for the whole term and be as regular as possible. Additional and optional open practice sessions for all levels will be organised monthly. 

The class is part of a wider project aimed at raising the profile of Odissi in the UK through training, performance, shared practice and creative endeavours. The class will contribute to the development of the Odissi Syllabus approved by the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing). In the longer term, it also aims to create a group of skilled practitioners who may be involved in creative projects and performance opportunities.
