Demystifying Indian Classical Dance

Via Ranjana Warier

Goal

To promote cross-cultural understanding by showcasing Indian Classical dances through adaptations of western fairy tales.

To promote cross-cultural understanding, Ranjana Warier will showcase traditional Indian dance through the stories of Western fairy tales. Leading professional Indian classical dancers will collaborate on the performance, while a lecture series will seek to demystify the complexity of traditional Indian storylines. The resulting stage shows will maintain the integrity of the ancient art form while breaking it down to make it more enjoyable for all ages.

Ranjana Warier was introduced to Indian classical dance at the age of 6. She has been an active performer/choreographer at events and festivals in United States and abroad. Recognized for her efforts to educate children on culture and history of India through dance, she thrives on preserving and promoting India’s artistic traditions. She has won grants from local government organizations and is the artistic director of Rhythms School of Dance in South Florida.
