CONNECTING GENERATIONS USING DANCE

August, 2018

We went to the Brookdale Senior Living Center. The most exciting part about this session was that we actually had one of the senior citizens who was a former dancer get up and teach the class with me. Her confidence radiated to her peers and soon others stood up and danced too. We started with an explanation of what Odissi dance is and where it is originated from. We watched a couple Odissi dance videos and shared stories about everyone's past experiences with dance. We ended with the dance lessons and soon enough we had the entire room chanting counts.
