Masterclass : Romancing the Rhythm

About the course

Celebrate the romantic Monsoon month with Kalashri Lata Surendra soaking into various aspects of rhythm. When Sage Narada heard the drops of rain falling on lotus leaves, he imagined the creation of the drum. Later when Lord Krishna danced on the hood of the Serpent Kaaliya, the sounds created by his feet reverberated and created eternal dancing syllables.

This course will become an intensive step towards composing unique rhythmic patterns for your own choreographic works.
