      Shakti Bhakti Ensemble // Shakti Rising: A Dance Journey to Sacred India

      Divine beauty comes alive as Shakti Bhakti Ensemble takes you on a journey into the heart of Indian Dance. Odissi is a tantric form of Classical Indian Dance characterized by the ecstatic expression of grace and power. The dance unifies feminine and masculine energies through fluid movement and ground shaking footwork. Through intricate hand gestures (mudras) and dramatic expression (bhava), the dancers weave an intricate realm of deep emotion and divine inspiration that will capture your heart and ignite your spirit. You are invited to enter an entranced state where dancers and audience merge in divine beauty and vibrant aliveness. The show includes inspiring excerpts describing the roots and culture of Odissi Dance, and the journey of becoming a temple dancer. "The delicate body movements and eloquent expressions of all performers was a treat for the eyeseach with their soulful expression exhibited richness and natural emotion, with exemplary footwork and divine graceoutstanding performances by the Shakti Bhakti Ensemble, it was a memorable evening." - Review by Sulekha.com Dancers: Revital Carroll, Carmela Woll, Cheryl Thompson, Melani Liu, Caitlin Hannah, and Andrea Farkas *Suitable for family audiences
