Abhinaya Dance Company presents their special spring concert selection -- Sadhika -- a celebration of Artistic Director Mythili Kumar's 50 years (and then some) spent dedicated to dance. Since 1962, Kumar has been learning, performing and teaching Bharatanatyam, an ancient style of Indian classical dance. Performing since she was 11 years old, and only recently returned from a performing tour of temples and cities of India, this special presentation will feature many of her signature, critically acclaimed choreographic works. Kumar's solo performance will be preceded by a special work from other Abhinaya Company dancers. Learn More
