Parul Shah Dance Company
Cynthia Lee
Wanted Ashiqz

A pair of sinuous dances'one rhythmic, one a love poem'by Shipra Mehrota, an exponent of the seductive dance form originating in the temple rituals of Orissa, India.

In his Meenakshi, dedicated to the fish-eyed goddess, Bharatanatyam and yoga exponent Navtej Johar celebrates the feminine principle through meditative and ritualized movement.

The New York-based Parul Shah Dance Company's abstract work Samanvay reflects an expansive and innovative view of the quintessential North Indian dance form Kathak.

Indian rhythm becomes a talking point for Cynthia Lee in Ruddha ("Rude, huh?").

An explosive blend of hip-hop, disco, and Bhangra, performed by the group Wanted Ashiqz, catapults audiences into the energy-filled world of Bollywood dance and music.
