At Nova Dance we love to find ways to use bharatnatyam as our baseline for telling unique stories, and exploring new ways to share this powerful art form
About This Event

NovaDance is embarking on a major new production and are looking to connect with dancers trained in classical Indian dance styles.  We’ll be hosting a gathering to talk about the Vancouver area body-choir we plan to develop and will offer a professional level workshop.

Participation in the workshop will be via RSVP to Nova Dance. Details coming soon.

Svāhā is a work for 15 Indian classical dancers premiering in Toronto in 20/21 and touring to Vancouver later that year.  A local body-choir assembled from semi-professional dancers and members of South Asian diaspora communities of an additional 30-75 performers will be incorporated into the performance.  We will also offer a professional level intensive for Vancouver dancers, providing training in Nova Dance’s repertoire with a view to casting for the ensemble cast.
