Madison Mostly Dance Festival | Kalagangothri: An Evening of Indian Classical Dance

By Madison Arts and Culture Alliance (other events)

Thursday, May 2 2024 7:30 PM 9:30 PM EDT

Enjoy an evening of traditional Indian Classical Dance as Kalagangothri presents Bharatanatyam, a classical form that expresses South Indian religious themes and spiritual ideas. The dance dates back to the time before Christ, although in India the date is referred to BCE and not BC. During India’s colonization by the British, the government tried to suppress temple dances, but since 1947, the art form has been revived. In the second half of the 20 th century, Bharatanatyam has become to Indian dance tradition what Ballet has been to the West.

The dancers include Gia Sudhi, Sihi Hebbar, Parnitha Surendra, Navya Subramanin, Samhitha Pavan, Dyuthi Mohan, Sai Soundaryaa Satish, Nandikaa Mohankrishna, Shikara Avinash, Aadhya Patel, Samhitha Rao,Diya Membally, Shilpa Kadambi, Risha Ravindran, Pradeep Kumar, Dr Meghana, Akhila Chetan, Chetan Hebbar.
