Maryam is a London based Odissi Indian classical dancer who holds love and devotion to art as her path to spiritual growth and self realisation. She has been travelling to India annually since 2009 to study the technique and cultural context behind these art forms intensively, developing her skill as a mover of grace, sincerity and sweetness.

The children’s workshop will explore some of the rich tapestry of themes in Vedic culture. The representation of nature and living things through the body, embodiment of gods and goddesses, as well as some exploration of basic mudras (hand positions). All in a fun and interactive way! The workshop is designed for young people in mind, though all are totally welcome.
