The Sureela Ensemble offers workshops, lecture-demonstrations and performances educating audiences on the cultural, musical and kinesthetic aspects of dance. An assembly performance or workshop generally includes:

  • Background information about Indian art and culture,
  • Basic explanation, demonstration and class participation to underscore the main principals of the dance, and finally
  • A storytelling segment that brings together cultural and performative elements through a relatable story based in Hindu mythology.
