Traditional Indian Dance Colorado Fine Arts Association
Wednesday, April 05, 2017, 7 p.m.
Free. No tickets required.
Bharatanatyam is one of the several classical dances originated in India. This particular dance form traces its roots to the culture-rich Southern State of Tamilnadu.
This graceful yet strong form of art is a combination of pure, physical dance and storytelling through emotive facial expressions and various hand gestures each signifying a different message. Numerous Bharatanatyam dances portray the different aspects of Hindu mythology, such as through stories about the many Gods of India. These stories are often didactic, and carry morals for humanity to follow. For example, the dancer may depict the different tricks Lord Krishna would play on the village girls, and then question the morality of these acts.
The performance presented by Colorado Fine Arts Association is performed by the graduates of the Shivanjali Center for Fine Arts, a school founded by Mrs. Puja Allepalli in 2004. We cordially invite you to attend this wonderful cultural opportunity, presented by the following 7 students: Saranya Budamgunta, Vidhya Dev, Divya Bhat, Sneha Varanasi, Meghana Yarlagadda, Shrushti Manikandan, Annika Ajay
