2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Viji will facilitate Indian classical dance and music workshops to more than 50 students over the course of three days. The participants will range in age, race, and ethnic cultural backgrounds and will include 20 professional dancers. Members of the community will come together and learn the details and technique of the art form, and collaborate to create new, original work. By performing and teaching classical Indian dance – particularly Bharatanatyam – Viji aims to preserve and explore a new future for this dance style that connects to modern, culturally and socially relevant themes.
