Ishti Collective celebrates expression, shares joy through collaborative practices, and fosters meaningful dialogue through radical acts of dance, storytelling, and artistic risk-taking. Our purpose is to create an environment where artists engage with the community to generate meaningful and accessible works that reflect our current times.
This workshop will be guided by Ishti’s Artistic Co-chair, Tuli Bera. Bera began her classical ballet training at the age of 5 at Champaign Urbana Ballet Academy. She continued her dance training, receiving her BFA in Dance at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Since then she has continued teaching ballet at various dance studios throughout Chicago. Bera understands that Ballet can be an intimidating artform. Her goal in sharing her knowledge of this art form is to make it accessible to anyone who wishes to experience it.
