CPCC to Host 12th Anniversary Performance of DANCES OF INDIA, 4/26

Internationally acclaimed performer and choreographer Dr. Maha Gingrich is excited to return to Central Piedmont Community College's Halton Theater stage to present the 12th anniversary performance of "Dances of India," a community outreach initiative.


This year's performance will explore the world of martial arts and how India's many classical dances, such as Kuchipudi, Bharatha Natyam and Kathak, have influenced the practices we know today such as Yoga, Kung Fu, Kali and others. Audiences will delight in watching as the dances show the many similarities between Indian dance styles and other international dances, especially during the show's signature dance, "Unity in Diversity," set to live orchestral music. Audiences won't want to miss this special event which strives to connect Indian dances to the world through a series of striking dance dramas that feature unique props, silk costumes and a compelling narrative.

Under Gingrich's direction, Dances of India has received a number of accolades, including being named one of the top nine memorable events among the nation's community colleges by Community College Week. Gingrich, who danced professionally in her native India, has been teaching dance in Charlotte since 1986. Trained in three different dance traditions, she has a great love for this dance form and keeping the heritage alive in this community while sharing the message of unity in diversity with residents at the regional level and beyond.
