Dances of India

CPCC’s very own Dr. Maha Gingrich will present the 11th annual “Dances of India” this spring. More than 30 dancers will perform a series of 3,000 year old traditional Indian temple dances that tell the story of ancient India through movement and music. Performers will showcase the dances in colorful silk costumes with materials and scarfs from various regions of India. Come out and see the differences between traditional Indian dances, the Russian Gypsy, Flamenco, Chinese Long fan dance, Chile’s national dance and Peruvian scarf dances. This event will keep the history and heritage of this art form alive in the community and share the message of unity and diversity among Charlotte’s international community.

In 2011 this event was named one of the top nine memorable events among the nation’s community colleges by Community College Week. “Dances of India” is an experience both you and your family will not want to miss!
