India Dance Festival
Venue: University Theatre
Ticket: Prices Vary
Presented by the Indian Classical Music Circle, the India Dance Festival features performances by experts of the Odissi and Kathak styles, Shibani Patnaik and Sunaina Rao.
Kathak, the dance style of north India, has the charm and subtlety associated with miniature paintings. Nurtured in the holy precincts of the Hindu temples, Kathak was further enhanced with Persian influence during the Mogul reign in India. Over the centuries, it has been refined and enriched by the establishment of distinct styles and gharanas. Odissi, a recognized form of Indian classical dance, comes from the eastern state of Orissa. Odissi dates back to 2nd century B.C. and is well known for its grace, fluid movements and strong footwork.
