Classes: Jiva Performing Arts offers ongoing, comprehensive training for beginner through professional levels in Bharatanatyam and Carnatic Music. In addition to classes, students take part in annual recitals and performances to enhance their training in the art forms. Students are encouraged to attend workshops with Master teachers from India as well as Intensive Summer Camps. Parallel classes are offered throughout the year, such as Ragas and Rhythms for Dancers and Yoga classes.
Workshops, Residencies and Lecture Demonstrations: Jiva artists have presented a range of educational programs, including Master workshops, residencies, lecture/demonstrations and performances for schools and universities. Each program can be customized and can include the practical, socio-historical and theoretical content of Indian Classical music and dance. Our programs focus on developing a creative and critical perspective to the art forms. Residencies may include a concluding performance.
