India has a rich tradition of classical dance and fine arts which Warwick ICD aims to give prominence to within the perfroming arts scene at Warwick University. Although many are familiar with Western Classical dance forms, Indian world-famous dance forms including Bharatnatyam, Kathak, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniattam and Odissi have thousands of years of history. These dance styles use the same 'mudras' (signs of hand) to signify expressions and often recount the stories surrounding various Hindu Gods and Goddesses. These dances 'make for a vigorous workout of the mind, body and soul' toning arms and legs and strenghening core and facial muscles.
Indian Classical Dance Society welcomes everyone with open arms, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced level dancer there is a place for you in our society! We would like to encourage anyone with a passion for dance and wants to try something new to join us in this coming year.
The society members are some of the nicest people you will meet on campus and we are very much a big family! We have several socials throughout the year from dinner on campus to nights out.
Most importantly as a member of the society you will have the opportunity to perform in a variety of shows throughout the year. We have had dancers at performances at One World Week, Pizazz and even at Thaala a university-wide ICD competition!
