Storytelling With Hand Gestures From Indian Dance

Storytelling has been used to educate, engage, and motivate audiences for centuries. Usually, we have seen stories with puppets, props, storybooks or just a narration but did you ever see a story coming alive...that's because not every time you get to feel the characters with your hands.

Come and join an interactive session of storytelling with hand gestures from Indian dance and also learn to feel the characters of the stories.

One of the main aspects of Indian dance is storytelling which is done with help of hand gestures. In this session, Dr. Pranitha Kamat will introduce a few simple hand gestures from Indian dance and encourages the children to use them in storytelling. The session will be highly interactive to kindle the child's creative imaginations
