Teaching Dance from a Distance
We know that there are quite a few dancers who teach Indian classical dances in the U.S.
We have the opportunity to see many of their students perform. Yet we don’t often hear about their experiences and views on teaching ancient dance forms whose roots are across the seas. We don’t often hear about how they got their start, or the challenges they face in teaching from a distance. This two-part series is an attempt to capture a little bit of that.
There are many wonderful teachers in the DC area. Here are some thoughts from a few of them to start with. If there is interest in hearing more, drop us a line and perhaps we can expand.
