Sai Nrityalaya Dance Group, is proud to present it’s second performance on Saturday, August 24th at 7pm at The Players Theatre. Doors open at 6pm. The group will showcase the oldest dance form of southern India, Bharatnatyam. As a special treat, two guest artists for the evening will also be performing veena (an Indian instrument similar to Sitar) and violin ensemble. Bharatnatyam was nurtured in the temples of southern India some 2000 years ago. The art was handed down as a living tradition from generation to generation. Today, it is a very popular dance form on the main stage worldwide. Adorn with gold jewelry, ankle bells, vivid colored silks, dancers use hand movements (mudras), facial expressions (abhinaya) and rhythmic foot work (nritya) set to classical music. Sai Nrityalaya Dance Group has performed at the 2011 International Folk Festival, 2011 Indian Film Festival, 2011, 2012, 2013 Relay for Life and several fundraising events for Hindu Temple of Tampa. The show will run for 90 mins and authentic Indian snacks will be available for purchase before the show catered by a local Indian restaurant. Adults: $15, Children 4-12: $10. For tickets call Box Office: 365-2494 or go online at www.theplayers.org
