“Dances of India” is excited to return this year to CPCC’s Halton Theater stage on Saturday, April 26 at 4 p.m.. For 12 years, Dr. Maha Gingrich has created a performance that has celebrated the history and culture of India through dance, bringing 3,000-year-old art forms to today’s audiences.
This year’s performance will explore the world of martial arts and how India’s many classical dances, such as Kuchipudi, Bharatha Natyam and Kathak, have influenced the practices we know today such as Yoga, Kung Fu, Kali and others. Audiences will delight in watching as the dances show the many similarities between Indian dance styles and other international dances, especially during the show’s signature dance, “Unity in Diversity,” set to live orchestral music. Audiences won’t want to miss this special event which strives to connect Indian dances to the world through a series of striking dance dramas that feature unique props, silk costumes and a compelling narrative.
