WHAT KIND OF DANCE CLASS?: Bharatnatyam is an Indian classical dance form that originated in the temples of Southern India. It was practiced and performed by temple dancers who were called ‘Devadasis’ or ‘Servants of God’. Its origin dates back to 2000 years ago but the name Bharatnatyam is a recent term. The name has been derived from four important aspects of dance, namely Bha from Bhava meaning emotion, Ra from Raaga meaning music or melody, Ta from Taala meaning rhythm and Natya meaning dance story. Bharatnatyam is considered to be the mother art of most other classical dances of India and inspires many art forms like sculpture and paintings.

Class is been held in english.

Who is a Sporttitutor? Sporttitutor is a student who through their own energetic example inspire others to do sports.

It is enough that you love sports yourself so much that you can share some of your positive energy and attitude to others as well. We also expect your commitment to the tutoring process, and hope that you would be ready to help also in the beginning of the autumn semester. It is a busy season in fall for sporttitutors. There will be “training sessions” in the during of spring, to which all sporttitutors are expected to participate.

Sporttitutors will organize:
