Proudly Presenting Dancing Storytellers
The PTA is happy to welcome our first cultural assembly featuring performing artists this Wednesday. The storytellers artfully weave foot rhythms, hand gestures and facial expressions into an interactive exploration of Indian mythology and its connections to our world today. Stories will be expressed through theater and contemporary Indian dance movement based on North and South Indian classical dances. A video introduction to Dancing Storytellers.
