Saket International School, Anjad organized an Odissi Dance Recital by Padmashree Geeta Mahalik under the aegis of SPIC MACAY on 19th October 2016. The artist was accorded a traditional welcome and the programme commenced with lighting of the ceremonial lamp. The artist explained the students the origin of classical dance; i.e. how Brahma created Natya Veda by taking speech from Rig Veda, Abhinaya from Yajur Veda, music from Samaveda and aesthetic experiences from Atharva Veda and revealed to SWACHH BHARAT ABHIYAN.
She started her performance with Shiv Stuti, in which she explained ‘Tribhangi’ where the body is held with three bends of head, torso and knees and ‘chauka’ a square like stance that symbolizes Jagannath.
The odissi exponent enthralled the audience with her mesmerizing footwork, facial expressions and homogeneity in presentation of this vibrant dance form. Truly an enriching experience for the students.
