We are thrilled to present our new project aimed at raising the profile of Odissi in the UK. SADU is the name of the recently born South Asian Dance Unit at Kingston University of London.

SADU will be a centre for advanced training and research in South Asian Dance, with a particular focus on Odissi dance. Specifically designed for KU students, the programme will be exceptionally open to externals as well.

There will be a number of initiatives under the SADU umbrella, including professional dance training, performance and choreographic opportunities, as well as research seminars for scholars working in the field of South Asian dance and performance.

As part of SADU, workshops with national and international artists working both within and beyond the classical dance vocabulary will be organised.

ODISSI training will take place weekly at Kingston University and it is open to externals interested in developing professional skills in this dance style. Please contact us if you are interested in attending this training programme.

Details of the ODISSI Training Programme:

Term 1 (8 weeks): Wednesdays from 7th October 2015, 6-8pm, Surrey Club Bar Studio, Kingston University, Penrhyn Road Campus.

Term 1 Cost: £100

The first SADU workshop will take place on 14-15 November and will be led by Odissi dancer Sonali Mishra.

SADU is hosted by Kingston University of London and has been conceived by Elena, as part of a wider project to raise the profile of Odissi dance in the UK.
