Dear Friends and Dance Connoisseurs,

PRAYAS is a promise that I made to myself, to showcase all my Arangetram students together on stage. And challenge myself to join them. We hear often that students give up dance after their Arangetram as they go off to college. Some who continue to pursue dance end up loosing the edge they once had; as they juggle life between coursework and dance teams. Prayas is a reunion of sorts - an attempt to collaborate with my beloved students and friends to express our inner self.  

To make it special, some of the best artists in Bharatanatyam have joined our reunion - Padmaja Kelam on nattuvangam, Dr. Sridhar Vasudevan on vocals, Ramamurthy Kesavan on mridangam/pakhawaj, G.S. Rajan on flute, Aditya Krishnan on violin - all accomplished and sought after artists in our field. What more can us dancers ask for - live orchestra pulsating our feet.

The culmination of our journey now needs a worthy audience like you to measure how far we have succeeded. 
Please get your tickets at www.deekshaschool.org/prayas - your response has been tremendous and we only have a few left.

Would love to see all of you there.

July 28, 2019 Seating starts at 4:00 PM
