Ongoing Classes at Ananya Dance Theatre

Wednesday Water Dances
Wednesdays, 9:30-11:00am CT with Kealoha Ferreira

A weekly dedication to the vitality and life force of Water. In class, we will offer breath, dance, meditation, story, song, and reflection. Each class will take shape a little differently, staying responsive to the ongoing movements protecting the value and longevity of water worldwide. Facilitated by Kealoha Ferreira, an Ananya Dance Theatre Artist, Wednesday Water Dances will begin with grounding movement, flow into dedicated time for personal practice/research/reflection, and close with collective sharing. All who are committed to deepening their relationship with water are welcome to participate.

Yorchhā* Elements | Yorchhā Integrations
Integrations every Friday, 6:00-7:00pm CT with Kealoha Ferreira
Elements every Saturday, 9:00-10:00am CT with Parisha Rajbhandari

Yorchhā Elements | Yorchhā Integrations is a new approach to the previous Intro and Advanced class structure. Now, these classes are in conversation with each other, breaking down Yorchhā elementals like footwork or torso articulation in the Saturday “Elements” class and then adding continued complexity in the following Friday’s “Integrations” class.

*Yorchhā is Ananya Dance Theatre’s trade-marked contemporary technique that intersects principles of vinyasa yoga, classical Indian dance form Odishi (from the eastern Indian state of Odisha), and martial art form Chhau (also from Odisha).

Yoga: Aligning With Land
Sundays, 3:00-4:00pm CT with Kealoha Ferreira

From Tadasana (mountain pose), the first asana in Surya Namaskar (sun salutation) A, we connect our feet to the ground and shift our internal landscape to find equity with the land that sustains us. Our practices of relationality and reciprocity are also building blocks for sustainable and regenerative body practices. This Vinyasa class introduces and deepens the fundamentals of structural and energetic alignment in Yoga while moving towards right-relationship between place and community. All are welcome to participate. Variations and modifications will be provided for multiple access points in each class. Mats and blocks are encouraged with limited supplies available at the Institute.

Students attending in-person classes must wear face masks during class. No exceptions.
