VIIS organized a cultural event “Dance forms of in India” different classical dances for the participants of The University of Michigan. Four classical dances performed by the accomplished artists. Bharatha Natyam by Vidushi Archana, Kuchipudi by Ms. Anamika Sivaraj, Kathak by Ms. Kruthi and Odissi by Ms. Sindhu Kiran. Each of the four dancers performed their dance form for about 20 minutes. Each presentation had a judicious mix of Nritya- the pure dance and abhinaya - the story-telling and enacting the lyric. At the end of the individual presentations, all the dancers performed an encore together.
