Lasya Attar

The Essence of Feminine Grace

Indian Fusion Dance Retreat

in BALI!

1st - 7th December 2019

 

 

 

Join us for our 7th annual Indian Fusion Dance Retreat with renowned international performer and Beloved teacher, Colleena Shakti.

 

LASYA - a Sanskrit word meaning feminine gracefulness,

 

ATTAR - a concentrated essence, usually in reference to perfume, derived from a labour intensive distillation process.

 

Just as in the distillation process of fine perfume oils, a dancer must find purification through concentrated efforts in the training process, distilling both her intentions and technique.  The most delectable and subtle of scents are had through intricate and time-consuming processes.  Come take some time for yourself to completely immerse in the rich world of dance that Colleena has created through bridging Indian dance and related arts philosophy, with contemporary techniques of Belly Dance and beyond! 

 

In Indian performance art theory, the goal of all art is to produce a delectable atmosphere, an air or essence that can be savored by the audience known as Rasa.  With the theory of Rasa being the starting point of all Indian art, it only seems fitting that the analogy of making attar (the most refined essential oil) be the parallel to the process of “making a dancer”.  

 

In this retreat only, we offer dancers reflective time to ask themselves what kind of dancer they want to be, and help them begin the journey to reach their goals.   The curriculum will focus on THE PROCESS.  Not only how dances are made, but more importantly, how *the dancer* is made.
