NDS offers a variety of workshops in both dance and music. Workshops may be scheduled for one, two, four, or six hours and are staffed by two professionally trained instructors.

For dance workshops, students do a series of flexibility exercises, are taught a number of basic steps and moves, and then begin to learn original choreography to the selected song. Practice music is included.

For music workshops, students are first introduced to the history of the instrument, its origin and significance in the culture, how it is made, and the basic patterns of a simple time cycle. A hands-on segment follows, along with group improvisation.

Workshops are ideal for schools, universities, the military, and business groups that wish to provide a unique and enjoyable learning experience for their students, employees, or members. These events are popular with children and adults of all ages, and suitable even for those who have had no prior dance instruction.

We offer workshops for the following:

We're also working on two new workshops: Bollyrobics and Buddhist Mañjuśrī Mudras, Mantras, and Meditation. Stay tuned for details.
