Workshops & After School Programs

Utpalasia offers a variety of online workshops for classical Indian Kathak and Bollywood Fusion.

Utpalasia workshops include a warm up and flexibility segment, followed by original choreography of an item or dance. There is a refresh and revise portion before the final practice to ensure proper form.

The Energy of Bollywood

Technical workshops focus on mastering classical components of dance, dynamics, and texture.

These intensive workshops are geared for mid to advanced level dancers and are offered several times a year. Previous experience in a selected style is highly recommended.

Take your skills to the next level, gain greater technical control and execution, expand your artistic range, and enjoy a super cardio workout in the process!

A full workshop session runs for two hours.

Utpalasia also offers age-appropriate after school enrichment programs with a specific focus:

  • Explore the core mechanics of Bollywood dance (age 7+)
  • Discover and perform Himalayan folk dance (age 7+)
  • Get fit with an aerobic workout to current hits (age 10+)
  • Learn basic classical Indian Kathak dance moves (age 10+)
  • Storytelling and guided reading for younger learners (ages 5-7)

After school programs are 60 minute classes that run once a week for 8 weeks. Storytelling segments are single presentations. We excel in creating original events for your school and welcome your requests. Contact us here.
