Your 6th grade students will see the photos of key artifacts from the ruins of the civilization and learn Bharatanatyam dance mudras that express motifs depicted on the artifacts. This kinetic experience will reinforce their learning. They will also be introduced to major Hindu deities through Bharatanatyam mudras and poses. Other topics such as the trade between Indus Valley and Mesopotamian civilizations will be explored as well. This multimedia program can be offered to the entire 6th grade student body as an assembly show or 2-session residency in the classroom setting.
“You have brought our class a bit closer to India, its culture, history and the heart of the people through your gifts of dance, drama, and story telling. Thank you! This experience will live within and nourish us for a long time.” Yolanda Benoit, Sarasota Waldorf School
