Preserving the authentictiy and quality of Odissi with our future dance
Lisa established Odissi Lasya to promote and preserve the Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra lineage through a strict adherence to the technique, and well rounded learning to include music, theory, and history.
Our learning approach:
Establishes a strong dance technique through rigorous and continuous training.
Fosters a connection with our dance Guru's and mentors from Srjan through domestic and international workshops
Follows the Odissi curriculum so students can pursue examination. Examination is only offered to students that have a solid understanding and ability to execute the material.
Items and technique taught are based upon the Srjan gharana and will reflect compositions by Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra and Guru Ratikant Mohapatra. No exceptions.
Students are expected to come to class prepared and practice regularly outside of class.
Minimum age to start is 7 years of age.
