Ragamala Indian Dance Workshop

The University Program Council, along with the Lied Center for the Performing Arts are proud to offer a unique dance experience to the Lincoln community. On April 10 the Ragamala Indian Dance Company will offer a dance workshop from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Mabel Lee Hall room 304.

The workshop will consist of three components: lecture, interactive demonstration, and private performance. In 90 short minutes, the Ragamala cast will provide attendees with an understanding and appreciation of South Indian dance that reflect the multicultural world in which we live. UPC and the Lied Center are excited to offer this one-of-a-kind opportunity for UNL students.

Attendees can reserve a spot on the UPC website at http://involved-apps.unl.edu/s/artsforAll/.

Acclaimed as one of the Diaspora’s leading Bharatanatyam ensembles, Ragamala Dance seamlessly carries this South Indian classical dance form into the 21st century. Artistic Directors Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy see Bharatanatyam as a multi-dimensional art form – a dynamic, poetic language with which to convey their contemporary ideas. While deeply respectful of the classical tradition, their vision and approach have inspired numerous collaborative partnerships with international composers, choreographers, poets, playwrights, and artists.

The Company has toured throughout the United States and abroad to such venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Bali Arts Festival in Indonesia, the Festival of Spirituality and Peace in the United Kingdom and the Soorya Music and Dance Festival in Kerala, India.

The University Program Council (UPC) is a student organization that provides diverse, educational and entertaining programs and events to enhance the UNL community.
