Today I had the pleasure of photographing the Jathiswara School of Dance and Music’s sixth annual recital. Upon receiving my assignment, I had no idea what I was getting into - other than an “Indian Dance,” as marked by the slug on my assignment. I did some research and still wasn’t quite sure what awaited me.
But I was so happily surprised with what I found.
I was surrounded by beautiful colors and even classic Indian music. The young ladies performing the traditional dance were so talented and so sweet. I was so taken with the beauty of it all, I immediately texted my boyfriend saying, “Let’s go to India!!” It is now on our to-do-list.
I am so grateful to have be able to capture part of the beauty and tradition that is Bharathanatyam. I cannot wait to experience it once again.
