Bringing it all together...
In ending, in our present world, seniors are not given the respect and honor they deserve. In making Bharatanatyam inclusive and available to our elderly global population, I have the privilege of offering a tremendous gift of confidence, education and sheer fun. While bringing forward my heritage and the lineage of my gurus to older adults in NYC and beyond, I play a small part in insuring that Bharatanatyam is immortal!
