India has a very rich and old heritage of music and dance forms. Performances at this festival present a snapshot of the broad variety of dance forms old and new in India. The shows will include classical dance styles of Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Kathak, and Odissi, folk dances from several states, accompanied by instrumentalists who play the flute, and percussions such as the dhol, tabla, and dholak.
It will also include the popular Bollywood dance style that is an evolving fusion of old and new in modern India. Our goal is to present a truly artistic experience entertaining for all age groups, and we hope to educate the larger community about the rich diversity of art forms from other cultures.
