  • Traditions of India by Ramya Ramnarayan | Young Audiences New Jersey


Originating in Hindu temples more than 2,000 years ago, traditional Indian dance combines fluid movement with complex melodies and rhythmic patterns. With Ramya Ramnarayan students experience the role dance has in the cultural and spiritual life of India. Adorned with beautiful costumes, jewelry, and makeup and using ritual hand gestures called mudras, the dancers present a common language of expression that is both physical and poetic.
