This program is designed to propagate and educate the audience on Indian Classical dances. It is observed that most of the younger generation do not completely understand Classical dance, and seem to have a notion that is boring and hence cannot appreciate this fine art.
We will position our performance, so the audience will grasp what we are doing and how we do it! We will endeavor to clear the communication gap – that exists between a Classical dancer and the audience.
It would not be just a dance program, but an evening of comprehending the grammar of the dancer and dance. Trust this first ever idea would be great experience, and the audience better appreciates the values of Indian heritage and culture.
Haleem Khan will be joined by Madhu Swaminadh on the stage, to entertain and interact.
