About

Classic Shakti School of Dance is the first module in Colleena’s new summer school program, and is based on the classic day at Shakti School of Dance, Rajasthan. Come immerse in the rigorous training of Classical Indian Dance, in a rejuvenating setting, on the most beautiful island of Greece.

Module One is offered over two weeks from Monday, June 11th through Friday, June 22nd 2018. You may choose to come for one week, or stay for the full 36 hour immersion. Drop ins are also available including Indian Fusion Bellydance on Monday and Wednesdays. And special workshops and performances on Saturdays.

Week One features foundational Odissi exercises and technique required for beginners. In week one we are also accepting “intermediate”, Odissi students.

Module One is ideal for intermediate Odissi students, and beginners to Odissi Classical Indian Dance. We believe that our experienced student’s will help create a uplifting and educational environment for new students. We invite both beginner and experienced students to come be part of this new exciting branch of Shakti School of Dance in Greece!

Transportation

You must provide your own transport. Villa Shakti is located in a rural location, in a very small village named Aikirgianis, near Topolia on the island of Crete in Greece. We will do our best to connect you with fellow students to collectively hire a car. A shuttle may also be available for your convenience for dinner service and special outings. We will provide a list of local car hires, taxis and look into hiring a shuttle for dinner service.

Accommodation

Shared on-site accommodation is available for a limited number of students at Villa Shakti. Many beautiful villas dot the countryside in and near our charming, intimate village in Topolia, Crete. We will connect students with one another to facilitate the shared booking of a private villa if they desire more space.
Preference for in-home accommodation is given to students who have studied 25 hours or more with Colleena Shakti. We are hoping to attract students who are excited about participating in the creation of a holistic and uplifting living space and training experience.

We believe art is a path.

Colleena warmly invites you into her personal home at Villa Shakti for this extraordinary, immersion experience. What a blessing to have the chance to study in the gurukul, the house of the guru (teacher). In Classical Indian Arts, since ancient times, it has been tradition to live at the home of the teacher. This is so that students may experience the life of the artist with a holistic approach, rather than just learning isolated techniques. Living together in an ashram-style setting will support the artist to embody nuances, and understand the spirit of the art as a “lived-approach”. Colleena invites you into this unique experience of an “art-ashram” with the spirit of full participation.
